Canberra is the meeting place for Australia’s biggest ideas.

We have a record of invention – from Wifi to Solar hot water. We’ve nurtured scientists, poets, philosophers, Nobel prize-winners artists and sportspeople.

We have the most highly educated population in Australia and we look for imaginative ways to solve problems.
