Canberra is a big sister koala villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Her name most likely references the capital of Australia, Canberra, as Australia is the homeland of koalas. She shares this trait with Alice, Melba, and Sydney, who are also female koala villagers named after cities in Australia.

In New Horizons, Canberra has the play hobby and can run around with her arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Artwork of Canberra from New Leaf.

Canberra is a koala with tanned skin, brown hair and eyebrows, a light brown nose, and large, dark red cheeks. She also has large, round, light blue eyes. The tips of her paws and the inside of her ears are white. She bears large similarities to another koala villager, Melba.


Below is a brief description of the big sister personality. For more information, click here.

Canberra acts as a big sister, meaning that while she may have some attitude, she also acts caring and forgiving toward the player. She also considers herself as a tomboy. She shows herself to be competitive, enjoying fighting and engaging in "turf wars". She will get along with normal villagers due to sharing a kind nature, lazy villagers for their relaxed views on life, peppy and jock villagers for their shared competitive nature, and their male counterparts, the smug villagers. She may not get along too well with snooty and cranky villagers due to their habit of spreading gossip. She, like all other big sister villagers will wake up at 9:30 AM and fall asleep at 3:00 AM.
