What is Canberra like?

Recently rated Australia’s most liveable city, Canberra provides a lifestyle that is not for everyone (and we like it that way). It offers easy access to the great outdoors, quiet residential areas, short travel time to work and an inner city (and surrounds) dining scene that is always developing.

Many Canberrans relish our four seasons and two hour trip to either the snow or surf. Canberra has a highly educated workforce and innovative business culture, offering a range of unique career opportunities – like this one.
