Discover Your Local City Area
Picture a big cosmopolitan lifestyle, great shopping, key attractions, massive events, fun activities, stylish cafes and restaurants on every corner surrounded by splendid parks and abundant bushland. Sounds impossible, right?
The nation's capital, Canberra, is the '20 minute city' where no places to go are ever too far. Home to countless national monuments and institutions, it's a big city with the heart of a small town. Before you whinge, yawn or mock this national gem, you'll most likely be welcomed by locals with a sparkling sense of humour and good ol' Aussie slang. Canberra CBD is dynamic, exciting and vibrant. It is the ultimate liveable city featuring homes with real backyards, a variety of recreational opportunities and an abundance of cultural attractions. Forget those baffling, impossible to navigate streets of Sydney. Canberra CBD is one of the world's few completely-planned cities where less commuting means more time to discover what's on within its natural wonders and delve into its hidden treasures.
Find quirky boutiques, alternative music stores, designer shoes and cosy cafes nestled away in the arcades in Canberra Centre , City Walk or Garema Place. Boasting 300 shops, the Canberra Centre has something for everyone: contemporary and innovative retail, leisure, cinema and sophisticated, upscale restaurants. Celebrate the region's social history and visual arts at The Canberra Museum and Gallery through its unique exhibitions and events. Stroll through Bunda Street, Garema Place or Northbourne Avenue. Dance the night away at the trendy Academy Club, listen to some soulful vibes in an oasis of comfort at the Hippo Bar or have a flutter at Casino Canberra .
Head out into fresh air and embrace Canberra's native parks and reserves. Delight a green sanctuary in the centre of the city at Glebe Park and explore its 19th Century style rotunda, children's playground or relax under the warm shade of its English elms. Sit and appreciate the charming City Hill , surrounded by Vernon Circle with its spectacular landscaping and view of the parliamentary triangle.
Plunge into an array of dynamic activities, endless outdoor pursuits and artistic endeavours at the nation's capital. Canberrans make the most out of their surroundings with an easy-going attitude and a dynamic community.
