Why Canberra?

Ranked as the world’s most liveable city, Canberra is a safe, friendly, convenient and multicultural environment in which to study, work and live.

Planned and purposely designed in 1913, Canberra is a city of unspoilt nature reserves, contemporary and dynamic urban spaces, and bustling precincts with a seamless integration of developed and natural elements.

With a population of just over 400,000 people, you get the excitement and advantages of city living, without the traffic, pollution and stress of the big metropolis.

Canberra’s new Light Rail Network is part of an integrated and connected public transport network for a low carbon future. Getting around is easy and quick. By car, everything is within a 30-minute drive. Here, we spend less time commuting and more time living.

Canberrans are also spoilt for choice when it comes to weekend activities. You could easily travel to Australia’s highest mountains and ski slopes, pristine beaches, vast rural landscapes and premium big cities—all within a few hours’ drive.
