  Canberra, the National Capital, belongs to all Australians. Canberra was planned and developed as the seat of the Australian Government. Nearly 100 years later, our National Capital is the location of Australia’s most significant national cultural institutions.

A beautiful city full of Australian character, it reflects our national life. Canberra’s national buildings and landscapes, dramatic vistas, magnificent gardens and backdrops of wooded hills provide the setting for the cultural institutions, symbols and ceremonies of Australia’s parliamentary democracy. They also provide the setting and venues for a vast range of activities and events that bring meaning and vitality to Australia’s capital city.

The Australian National University is one of the world's most highly respected universities, created to drive Australia's social, cultural and economic prosperity through research of the highest quality by an Act of Federal Parliament in 1946.

The university is situated on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin just 1 km from the city centre and 8 km from the Airport. The University is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious campuses with over 3,100 staff, 12,000 students (4,000 postgraduates) and 1200 academic staff and researchers.
