A mix of public service agencies and private companies are located in Canberra’s CBD. There has been a rapid increase in the number of CBD residential buildings built over the past 10 years. This has created a more modern style of living for those who choose to be in the heart of it all.
Compared to Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is still a relatively young city. The CBD has a well-balanced combination of ‘old and new’ architecture and the lifestyle is a little slower paced than other capitals around the country. As more people start living in the city they are discovering it is a relaxed place to be. Healthier living is one of the benefits people are finding from living here, as we result of walking to work, going to the gym or jogging around Lake Burley Griffin. When it’s time for a holiday there is nothing better than knowing you don’t have to worry about gardens or lawns, just lock up and leave.
There is plenty to do in the City. Award winning restaurants, bars and cafes are everywhere. The Canberra Centre provides a large range of shopping options and it is easy to get to the rest of Canberra’s suburbs from the bus interchange and the light rail to Gungahlin.
Living in the City means you can walk to work, walk to entertainment and walk back home. There are more plans to expand the number of residential buildings in the CBD and this will be a great benefit to those looking for the inner city lifestyle.
When it comes time to entertain the kids there are plenty of choices available in the City. Picnics in Glebe Park, activities by the Lake, going to the movies and Civic pool are just a few of the things to do in the City. And of course there are further options for the family just a short drive away.
