Canberra

Introduction of Canberra

Canberra is the capital of the Commonwealth of Australia. It is Australia's largest inland city with a population of more than 360,000 and ranks eighth in all Australian cities. Located at the northern end of the Australian capital territory, it is 280 kilometers and 660 kilometers from Sydney and Melbourne, two metropolitan cities on the eastern coast of Australia.

The Commonwealth of Australia decided in 1908 that the compromise geographical location between Sydney and Melbourne would be the capital, that is, today Canberra. it is a planned city planned for a small number of Australian cities, and began construction in 1913, with the master plan designed by American Chicago architects Walter Bree Griffin (Walter Burley Griffin) and the Marion Mahoney Griffin (Marion Mahony Griffin). The griffin couple's design stood out in the global design competition at that time, combining geometric patterns such as circles, hexagons, triangles, and so on. The design of the city is influenced by the garden city movement, throwing away the old concept of parks as embellishment, and directly integrating many important areas into natural vegetation, thus enjoying the reputation of "natural capital ". Nevertheless, the development of Canberra began with a sharp increase in differences between the First World War and the economic panic, plans and a sharp decline in the pace of urban development. The National Capital Development Commission was established after the end of the Second World War at the initiative of Prime Minister Robert Menzice to coordinate the development of the Canberra, Canberra began to flourish as an emerging capital. The Australian Capital Territory is now an autonomous territory with responsibilities for state-level government and Canberra local government, but some of the authority remain under the control of the Federal Capital Office.

The Australian parliament House, the High Court of Australia and numerous other government departments and diplomatic offices are built Canberra the Australian political centre. It is also home to many national social and cultural institutions, such as the Australian War Memorial, the Australian National University, the Australian Sports Institute, the Australian National Gallery, the Australian National Museum and the Australian National Library. The Australian army headquarters, as well as military main educational institutions, the Royal College of military and the Australian Defence College, are also located in Canberra.

Canberra the population is dominated by public servants, the unemployment rate and average income are better than the national average, and prices are relatively high, partly due to relatively limited development regulations.
