Attractions

Canberra is a planned city and the inner-city area was originally designed by Walter Burley Griffin, a major 20th-century American architect. It is home to many national monuments and institutions such as the Australian War Memorial, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Library, the National Archives, the Australian Academy of Science, the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum and Commonwealth government buildings such as the Parliament House, the High Court and the Royal Australian Mint.

A permanent collection of local history and art and visiting exhibitions are found in the Canberra Museum and Gallery.

Festivities

The theatre and live music scene in Canberra is something to look forward to. It is home to Llewellyn Hall, a world-class concert hall, alongside the Canberra Theatre and Playhouse which hosts many major concerts and productions. The Albert Hall was the city's first performing arts venue. The Street Theatre is a venue with less mainstream offerings. There are numerous bars and nightclubs which also offer live entertainment, particularly concentrated in the areas of Dickson, Kingston and the city. Canberra is a city of performing arts and theatre that is why most town centres have facilities for a community theatre and a cinema. Canberra residents also celebrate a handful of popular cultural events namely, the Stone Day, the National Folk Festival, the Royal Canberra Show, the Summernats car festival, Enlighten festival, the National Multicultural Festival in February and the Celebrate Canberra festival held over 10 days in March in conjunction with Canberra Day. The Canberra Nara Candle Festival is a community celebration of the Canberra Nara Sister City relationship, held annually in spring at the Canberra Nara Park on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin.

Storage in Canberra

Lanyon and Tuggeranong Homesteads in the Tuggeranong Valley, Mugga-Mugga in Symonston and Blundells' Cottage in Parkes are several European style historic homes open to the public. Housing in Canberra used to be made up of detached houses and terraces. In 2016, apartments built in four storeys or higher made up 92 percent of approved dwellings. According to the latest Census data, Canberra’s 406,000 people, an 11 percent increase since 2011, is expected to increase significantly over the next few years. In preparation of this rise, apartment construction is becoming a fast-growing industry in Canberra. With Australian property prices at all-time highs, home buyers and renters are choosing more affordable high density housing. Another deciding factor towards apartment living is the proximity to the CBD and town centres.

For the past years, Canberra’s usual dwellers are people looking for job opportunities and students studying in universities. As the majority of the population are not long-term residents, temporary housing such as renting apartment units are the best accommodation option. Nowadays, young professionals are changing their lifestyles and are more keen to reside in high density properties. Living in such small spaces does often mean less room and therefore a greater need for storage spaces. These young dwellers usually doesn’t mind moving from a spacious traditional house to downsize into apartment units. They are more than willing to pay extra for the spaces they would need for storage or parking.
