Canberra offers the best of both worlds. It puts you in prime position for shopping, dining, culture and more, with the added bonus of friendly locals.
It’s Canberra’s contrasts that make it such a great place to call home. While we are known as the seat of government, we are far from a formal city. We have an easy lifestyle and strong community vibe. And it’s a beautiful place to explore.
We welcome people from across Australia and all around the world. More than 26% of Canberrans are from overseas. One in four speaks a language other than English.
Canberra brims with culture and art. We host some of the country’s top cultural attractions. This includes Australia’s National Gallery and National Museum, and many more. The local art scene is full and rich too. It’s bustling with artists, actors, musicians and writers. They work beside our thought leaders, academics and creatives.
Canberra is a great place to raise a family. Our city offers accessible outdoor and natural spaces, a safe environment and an outstanding education system. Canberra gives you back time to do the things you choose. Because you don’t spend hours in traffic, you gain time to be with those you love most. Work life balance is the real deal here.
We’re the most physically active community in Australia. Sport and recreational activities are a highly prized part of our lifestyle. Our extensive network of cycleways and footpaths make getting outdoors enjoyable and safe. We’re keen supporters of our elite sporting teams too. The Canberra Raiders, Brumbies, UC Capitals and others enjoy loyal and enthusiastic Canberra supporters.
