Living in Canberra

ACT Government

Canberra has long been known for the national institutions that dot the landscape from Parliament House to the National Gallery of Australia and the War Memorial, or for regular events such as Floriade and The National Folk Festival. However, in the last decade it is the revitalisation of the city with the development of a lively cafe, restaurant and bar scene and creative spaces popping up that have seen Canberra more recently labelled one of the ‘most liveable cities in the world’.

Canberra presents excellent career opportunities, an increasingly interesting culture, diverse arts, outdoors and foodie scene and is just a short trip to the South Coast beaches or the Snowy Mountains. As part of the ACTPS you will not only be able to take advantage of everything Canberra has to offer but help make it grow into the future.
