Canberra is the capital of Australia embracing many fascinating and beautiful buildings.  Canberra means “meeting place” in Ngunnawal, one of the Indigenous languages spoken in the district by Aboriginal Australians. It is a city with a comfortable atmosphere, well designed and well-planned. Including being called “The capital of the past to the future”.

Canberra is the administrative center of the country. It is the location of various government offices such as Parliament, National Art Gallery and the National Library. The natural beauty around  Canberra is special with plains, mountains and snowy mountains that are suitable for skiing in the winter. The main river is the Molonglo River that flows through Canberra and was excavated into a beautiful large lake to support the water during the rainy season.

Moreover, Canberra is a city suitable for study because it is a safe city and has a low crime rate. It ranked the 22nd best student city in the QS Best Student City Rankings in 2018. There is a place for entertainment, shopping with great sport events and also home of wine production.

Canberra has good weather regardless of the season. In Spring, the city is very beautiful, with many flowers coming into bloom. It is a perfect time for hiking and biking around the colorful city lakes.  With different seasons, the scenery of the city will change from shades of red, gold, reddish brown, ocher to crimson.
