Where to find us

The Treasury is located in Canberra, which, for many of you will mean relocating to Canberra if you choose to take up employment with us.

So you're interested in the job, but not sure about Canberra?

Canberra is a great place to live and has a fantastic lifestyle, and there is much more on offer than politics and Parliament House! Canberra has a wide range of sporting events and competitions, plenty of open space and a year-round program of special events including Skyfire, Floriade, the Multicultural Festival, and music festivals such as Foreshore and Groovin' the Moo.

Canberra is also home to many of Australia's premier cultural attractions - the National Gallery, the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum with a range of exhibitions and performances.

Information about Canberra and what it offers to residents and visitors can be found at the following websites:

Social Network of Graduates (SNoG)

While making the move may seem a bit daunting, there will be graduates from universities all around the country in the same boat. The Social Network of Graduates (SNoG) is an organisation that aims to assist graduates, particularly those who have moved from interstate, to meet each other and explore Canberra and its surrounds. SNoG is run by graduates and they organise a broad range of social events and activities that cover all interests, whether they be sports, arts, culture or sampling Canberra's nightlife.

For more information visit the SNoG website 

Canberra and Beyond…

While Canberra has plenty to keep you occupied, the beach, snow fields and Sydney are only a short drive away. There are also wineries, mountains, and historic towns within an hour and a half's drive.

Michael, 2013 Graduate (relocated from Perth)

"Since living in Canberra, I have enjoyed getting involved in Latin dancing, tennis, foreign film festivals, art galleries and going for walks around Lake Burley Griffin. I have also taken weekend trips to Sydney, Melbourne and graduate trips to the coast and snowfields. Canberra has surpassed all my expectations."

Kristin, 2013 Graduate (relocated from Wollongong)

"I've really enjoyed the lifestyle Canberra affords graduates, providing a real work-life balance. There is always something on in Canberra and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in sporting, cultural and social activities. I would recommend making the most of every opportunity to explore Canberra, having made many new friends along the way."
