How long does it take to get to Canberra from Melbourne?

Depending on the route you choose to take, Canberra is approximately 700km away from Melbourne. That equals out to about an eight-hour drive in pristine conditions. Whether it’s work or play that’s inspiring your move to Canberra from Melbourne, there’s no denying that it’s a long way from home. Although eight hours between you and your current location might be a dream for some, it’s still a terribly long drive!

Of course, there are flights from Melbourne to Canberra that will shave six to seven hours off your commute time. The only problem with taking a plane is that most of us can’t fit all of our possessions on board. In the rare case, you can, baggage prices are exorbitant. Thankfully, you can step foot onto the plane without a worry (or a bag) while our professional, reliable, and friendly team do the miles on the road. We’ll get your belongings to your new home in our Optimove furniture removalist truck while you sit back and relax.

Three reasons why you should move to Canberra from Melbourne

Perhaps you’ve had a dream job offer that is leading you to the country’s capital and you’re not sure if you want to take it. Maybe you’ve realised that Melbourne isn’t for you and you’re weighing up your options for your next location. If you’re still deciding whether or not you want to move to Canberra from Melbourne, we’ve listed three reasons why we think Canberra is a dream destination to help you make up your mind.

Canberra is affordable, yet a well-developed city

Canberra consistently hits the top lists of affordable cities to live in Australia. It’s a perfect choice for students, retirees, and even young families who love the city life without the big price tag. Starting a family in Canberra is an excellent choice thanks to the reasonable cost of living. Despite being one of the least expensive areas in the country for students, Canberra boasts the title of the most educated city, with a study published in the Canberra Times media outlet concluding that Canberra has the highest rates of year 12 completion in the nation.

A city that’s equipped for educated residents often equals a city where higher grade employment is available. Married with the title of affordable, Canberra could offer up many comfortable living opportunities that are often difficult to maintain in Melbourne.

Canberra offers many of the same benefits as Australia’s more popular destinations.

Thanks to the aforementioned lifestyle affordability and quality education, Canberra has a large student population. The city caters to this in many ways, including excellent transport systems and short commute times between essential stores and facilities. Not only that, there’s a happening nightlife in Canberra. There’s no doubt that Melbourne is the hub for culture and great bars, but if leaving that behind is your only hesitation when it comes to leaving Victoria, you’ll be happy to learn that Canberra isn’t too far behind. In fact, Lonsdale Street Braddon is quickly gaining notoriety across the world for its hipster bars, quality coffee, and boutique stops.

You’ll also be in awe of great architecture and art in the wonderful city of Canberra.

Canberra has a more diverse Australian climate

Canberra is well known for its winter sports. If you’ve been living in Melbourne and visiting famous ski resorts, like Thredbo or Perisher, then you’ll be familiar with the lengthy six-plus hour drive to the fun winter locations. Living in Canberra means you’re closer the slopes at only a two and a half hours away from these widely celebrated destinations. You can start to develop your snowboarding skills. If you’re not looking to be a pro, it’s still good to know that you’ll have something fun to do during the colder months without having to tackle a full day of driving before you even arrive.
