Australias capital city of Canberra is more then just the central hub for all things government. It is Australias laregest inbound city and also the 8th largest city in the country overall. At times, Canberra can be overlooked, since it competes with its popular east coast city siblings of Sydney and Melbourne, however now may be the time to consider buying a business in Canberra.

Canberra is very well known for not only parliament house, but it's national museseums and galleries as well as it's local natural treasures. It has commonly been referred to as the 'Bush Capital' of Australia, thanks to it being almost entirely surrounded by bush and the only capital city in the country that is entirely inland, with no coast running to either side of it.


Did You Know that Canberra is the is the only city in the world where you can skydive over the country’s parliament house? Not a fan of skydiving? It's also the only city in Australia with its own dedicated hot air ballooning festival!


 Canberra is also a great place to buy a business largely due to it's proximity to the government. It's only natural to expect that those living closest to our law makers will be able to have their voices heard and influence felt thanks to those making the decisions living, working and immersing themselves in the capital city itself. In addition to this, Canberra itself is a young, innovative city, a hot bed if you will, of technological and sustainable innovations, with the ACT Government committed to providing simple, sustainable and supportive policies and legislation. When considering buying a business in Canberra, be sure to check out the Canberra Government Business website and see if you may be eligible for any grants or training that can be provided.

Sounds like a great place to set up shop and buy a business doesn't it? Here are 6 business for sale in Canberra that deserve your attention on Bsale.
