Heres a little more about Canberra if youre not a local!

Canberra was recently rated Australias most liveable city, and for good reason. It offers easy access to the great outdoors, quiet residential areas, the countrys shortest median travel time to work (17.4 minutes!) and an inner city (and surrounds) dining scene that is always developing. Many Canberrans relish our four seasons and two hour trip to snow or surf. Canberra boasts a great food and wine culture and is very family-friendly with progressive education, health care, clean environment, and is home to some of Australias best roads and bike paths. Its a safe, relaxed place to live.
