Australian Capital Territory

About the ACT 

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is Australia’s smallest territory comprising 2,359 km2 of picturesque Australian bushland and one thriving city – our national capital, Canberra.

Home to over 370,000 people, much of what is best about Australia can be found in Canberra. And with around 30 per cent of the population born overseas, Canberra is a truly multicultural city.

Canberra’s location puts it at the heart of the prosperous south-east of Australia, strategically located between Australia’s two largest cities Sydney and Melbourne. It’s just two hour’s drive from the beautiful south coast beaches of New South Wales and Australia’s largest winter snowfields.

The Nations Capital 

With Australia’s lowest unemployment and highest average wages Canberra offers a fantastic employment opportunities across a range of industries. But your decision to live in Canberra is about more than starting a business or finding a job. An average commute of just 20 minutes means you’ll spend less time in traffic and more time doing the things you love.

If outdoor pursuits are your thing perhaps you’ll enjoy mountain biking at the world class Mount Stromlo facility, sailing on Lake Burley Griffin or golfing at one of our 10 courses.

Ours is a city of endless pleasures with a cultural calendar that is overflowing. Our healthy appetite for the arts supports a vibrant community and a great array of local and international events. As the nation’s capital Canberra is also home to most of Australia’s major cultural institutions.

With first-rate schools and universities, quality health care and a clean, safe environment, Canberra ticks all the boxes!
