It's official Canberra - we can't get enough of turning the camera on ourselves, canberratimes.com.au reported.

A new 'definitive ranking' of the world's selfiest cities by TIME Magazine has Canberra in the top spot for most number of selfies per capita in Australia.

As part of its research, TIME built a database of more than 400,000 Instagram photos tagged "selfie" that included geographic coordinates.

In total, 459 cities were ranked to determine the selfiest places on earth.

Canberra comes in at Australia's selfiest city, with 18 selfies per 100,000 people (ranked 169 on the world list), while Sydney-siders aren't far behind, with 18 selfies per 100,000 people but ranked at 171 on the world list.

Melbourne and Brisbane come in at three and four respectively on the Australian list, with our Perth friends proving the most camera shy at just 12 selfies per 100,000 people.

Makati City, in the Phillipines, is the world's selfiest city, followed closely by Manhattan, New York at number two and Miami, Florida at number three.

And when it comes to the perfect selfie, you can't beat our cultural institutions for a stunning backdrop.

Data from Instagram shows the Australian War Memorial is the top geotagged location for pics in Canberra (13,429 tags in 2016) and our beautiful Lake Burley Griffin isn't far behind (12,597 tags last year).

The National Gallery of Australia is up next with 10,827 tags in 2016. Surprisingly, the Australian National University is a destination of choice for Instagram pics, with almost as many people tagging themsleves at the university as Parliament House (8257 and 8318 tags respectively).

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) generally is the eighth most geotagged location in Australia on Instagram - Bondi Beach is number one.
