Why was Canberra, a leafy and largely suburban city of 400,000 people, picked by a multinational tech giant as a testing ground for its drone delivery service?
Wing, a subsidiary of Google/Alphabet, has been trialing delivery drones in and around Canberra since 2017.
Three years ago it set up a permanent base in the city's north. The drones now deliver to seven suburbs.
The service recently partnered with Coles but most merchants it works with are Canberran restaurants and cafes.

But there's been push back to the new technology in particular when it comes to the noise.
And it raises questions over the lack of regulation around drones and who is best placed to manage our skies.
