Destination Canberra

As Canberra celebrates its centenary year, we have the opportunity to reflect on our great city and its place in the world. While it remains a young city, it is a city of immense resources and opportunity that has earned its place as a great capital, and continues to grow and develop each and every year.

Purpose-built as the meeting place of the nation, Canberra offers infrastructure and expertise unique in Australia. World experts, famous artists, leading researchers including Nobel Prize winners, senior executives, federal politicians, media figures and business leaders reside and do business in our city every day. Canberra is also home to national landmarks and institutions such as Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and the National Library - to name a few - each with its place in the Australian Story.
