Canberra is the capital city of Australia and it is the largest inland city and the eighth-largest city overall. The city is located at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory, south-west of Sydney, and north-east of Melbourne. The site of Canberra was selected for the location of the nation’s capital in 1908 as a compromise between rivals Sydney and Melbourne. It is unusual among Australian cities, being an entirely planned city. Following an international contest for the city’s design, a blueprint by the Chicago architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin was selected and construction commenced in 1913. The city’s design was heavily influenced by the garden city movement and incorporates significant areas of natural vegetation that have earned Canberra the title of the “bush capital”. As the seat of the government of Australia, Canberra is the site of Parliament House, the High Court, and numerous government departments and agencies. It is also the location of many social and cultural institutions of national significance, such as the Australian War Memorial, Australian National University, Australian Institute of Sport, National Gallery, National Museum, and the National Library.
Whether in town to lobby the government, attend a seminar at the Australian National University, or simply see the sights of the nation’s capital, your hotel serviced apartment at Medina Executive James Court will make a perfect ‘home base’. It is surrounded by all the conveniences of Canberra’s Central Business District, with its cafes, fine dining, and shopping.
