Compared to other capital cities, Canberra is easy to live and work. Great for family life and has most of the benefits of the bigger cities without the traffic and hectic pace. Easy to I've in, easy to work in and easy to meet people in.

Canberra is a nice place to live although it feels like an exhibition house. has all the good ideas and always very clean but feels sterile. There is lots of art work in and around the city though i am yet to meet an artist. Nice enough but im ready to go
