Voted one of the world's most liveable cities, who wouldn't want to live here?

Ranked as the world’s most liveable city in 2015, Canberra offers all the excitement and advantages of city living without the traffic, pollution and stress of larger cities, to provide the ultimate work/life balance.

Our dynamic economy, highly educated workforce and an innovative business culture provide unique and exciting career and business opportunities. And because everything is within a 20 minute drive of your home, you can spend less time commuting, with 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 out for a day on the slopes or at the beach.

As our Nation’s Capital, we are also home to most of Australia’s major cultural institutions, an international airport and a cultural calendar overflowing with world-class exhibitions, arts festivals and entertainment. The question here is not what to do, but when.


One good thing after another

From hipster bars to technicolour events, immersive exhibitions to adrenaline fuelled mountain bike riding, Canberra continually surprises with new events, attractions and experiences.

We are a foodie’s paradise with a truly eclectic mix of dining styles, cuisines and home grown produce such as cool-climate wines, truffles and smoked meats. One moment you might find yourself sampling artisan cheeses at a providores market stall, the next sitting down to a 7 course degustation dinner at an award-winning restaurant.

Culture buffs are also well catered for here. As home to the Australian National Collection, you can explore significant culture, art and history throughout our iconic museums, galleries and archives, along with regular blockbuster exhibitions and experiences.

Every year our calendar of events increases with new and exciting additions, along with our existing annual crowd pleasers such as Floriade, the Canberra Balloon Spectacular and the after-dark celebration of Enlighten.

Built around lakes and rivers and nestled in the midst of pristine bushland, the great outdoors takes on a new meaning. Here you can take the kids tobogganing at Corin Forest Snow resort, shred up some single trails at Mount Stromlo or kayak on Lake Burley Griffin.

And at the end of a full day, you can choose to lay your hat at anyone of our accommodation options ranging from luxury hotels and self-contained apartments to hostels, camping sites, rural properties, or even a room right next to some welcoming zoo animals.
