National Arboretum Canberra

Chief Minister’s Welcome

ACT Chief Minister-Andrew Barr MLA

Welcome to Canberra

Canberra enters 2021 with a sense of optimism. 2020 delivered its fair share of challenges, with COVID-19 impacting communities across the globe.

Yet, Canberra’s resilience and effective health response has ensured our city continues to be a safe and vibrant place to visit as we focus on our economic recovery.

Canberra has a reputation for being one of Australia’s best cities to meet in. A dynamic intersection of government, science, arts, education, research, and business come together to create Australia’s knowledge capital, giving access to our nation’s greatest minds.

Exploring Canberra will enrich your time here more than you might expect. We’re a region of contrasts. A national attraction in the morning, wineries in the afternoon. Your delegates will have no trouble finding things to do when the work is done.

Getting here and getting around is also a breeze. A diverse collection of venues that inspire creative thought and conversation offer easy access to hotels, business, hospitality, and retail precincts.

The team at the Canberra Convention Bureau is ready to connect you with all the people you need. Collaboration is their speciality.

Meet in Australia’s city of knowledge and discover more than you came for. We look forward to welcoming you.

Andrew Barr MLA
ACT Chief Minister
