From wildlife to nightlife, from national monuments to National Parks, from observatories to conservatories and physical culture to viticulture, Australia's capital, Canberra is a city of many parts. Of all the cities in Australia, you will find that Canberra is one of the most convenient, safe, and pleasant in which to live and study. Medium-sized by Australian standards, Canberra combines the advantages of big city life - shopping malls, cinemas, art galleries, sporting facilities, markets, theatres, festivals and coffee shops - with all the aspects usually associated with smaller cities void of traffic congestion and pollution problems to name a couple. An outstanding feature of this well planned city is the abundance of greenery - trees, gardens and native bush land. There is also a network of bicycle and walking paths linking Canberra with surrounding suburbs, parks and lakes.
