Canberra is the capital of Australia and is home to the University of Canberra. Canberra is a friendly, safe and peaceful place to live and although English is the main language, there is a broad ethnic diversity, which is reflected in the range of dining, music and theatre on offer. It is a dynamic city that’s full of life with all sorts of exciting things to do and plenty of interesting cafes, bars and clubs. Locals call Canberra the’20 minute city’ because nothing is very far away. For example, the UC campus is just ten minutes by bus or car from the city centre. Not only that, but it’s three hours to Sydney, seven hours to Melbourne and only two hours to the magnificent snowy mountains.
