The Location
Canberra- Australia’s Capital city and set in a state all of its’ own, ACT is home to over 345,000 residents and the Australian Parliament. It is a unique city as it was purpose-built as a compromise capital between the two rival cities Melbourne and Sydney.

Canberra is a thriving city with a low unemployment rate and only a couple hour's drive away from Sydney. It is also close to some of the East Coast’s most beautiful coastline and some of Australia’s ski fields. Other leisure pursuits include wineries with cellar doors that welcome visitors to taste their locally grown produce.

This clean safe city has the lowest crime rates in Australia and also the highest levels of pay.

Different people require different lifestyles and Canberra has it all to offer. You can choose to live in a city apartment or why not live the rural dream and spread out on suburban land! Most people only live about 20 minutes away from the city centre, so commuter stress is non existent. Imagine being able to either walk to work or take a short bus journey with no traffic queues!
