Choose Canberra

Canberra has the power to surprise – with food and wine, with art and culture, with ideas and innovations.

As an evolving city, this element of surprise continues even once you’ve made Canberra your home, with new developments, events and opportunities constantly emerging to keep life interesting.

Canberra is also a planned city – designed to maximise opportunities for work and play.

As our Nation’s Capital, big ideas emerge, circulate and grow here, thanks to unique links between leading thinkers in business, government, education and research. Our dynamic economy, highly educated workforce and an innovative business culture provide career and business opportunities unique to Canberra.

And because everything is within a 20 minute drive of your home, less time commuting, means more time to play.

Our healthy appetite for outdoor pursuits is enhanced by the natural resources available: from sailing on Lake Burley Griffin, mountain biking at the world class Mount Stromlo facility or heading up to the Snowy Mountains for a day on the slopes.

We are also home to most of Australia’s major cultural institutions and a cultural calendar overflowing with international exhibitions, arts festivals and entertainment.

The question here is not what to do, but when.
