Canberra celebrates its centenary – 100 years of population change

Type of Event: 
Seminar
Description: 

In the 100 years since Canberra was formally named on 12 March 1913 as Australia's capital, its population has grown from a small rural community of less than 2,000 people (outnumbered by sheep and cattle at a ratio of over 500 to 1), to a city made up of over 100 suburbs and nearly 400,000 people. The drivers of growth have differed from many other cities whose transport advantages, location and accessibility supported the more common trade and economic foundations of growth.
