Moving to Canberra

"Life is less chaotic here and the sense of ease is palpable."

With a title like ‘world’s most liveable city’, it’s easy to see why so many people are making the move to Canberra.


Canberra’s Seasonal Charms

If you enjoy variety, you'll love our four distinct seasons.


With flowers in bloom, and the weather warming up, Spring is a great time to explore our natural beauty and enjoy one of our many seasonal events.


Our summers are warm and dry. Make the most of the longer days with a twilight picnic by the lake, or family day trip to the beach.


As the season changes, the autumn leaves provide a kaleidoscope of colour and a photographer's dream. It's a beautiful time of year in Canberra.


A cool and crisp Winters' day gives you the perfect excuse to visit one of our world-class galleries and museums, or indulge in a hot chocolate by an open fire.

We host some of the country’s biggest festivals and exhibitions. Our eclectic community calendar is packed with activities for everyone to enjoy.
