Where to meet Canberra Singles
Canberra, the capital of Australia, has a bustling social scene. The city is large, and being the capital, caters to a wide demographic, from the corporate elite to the university student. It's a large city - the largest inland city in Australia, situated between Sydney and Melbourne - with over 350,000 people, many of whom make their living in the civil service. It is a fairly affluent city, with a very low unemployment rate. This has led to a positive joie de vivre among residents, and an exciting environment for eating, drinking, and life's many other pleasures.
Canberra singles have a variety of places to bump into each other, from the after work bar scene, to the many open areas and green spaces dotted throughout the city. After all, the name Canberra comes from the indigenous Cambera, meaning "meeting place." It's easy to make connections through friends, work, on campus, or out at a club. Once a match is made, the choices for first dates and special occasions are endless.
The trendy Braddon area is a gentrified formerly industrial area, with indie cafes and sandwich shops springing up all over, alongside craft breweries and wine bars. This gives younger Canberra singles a great opportunity to meet in groups of friends, often hitting it off with someone, making plans to meet again. It is a popular area with Generation Y and Millenials, along with students from the nearby University of Canberra.
The National Arboretum is the city's jewel, and offers a great place for a first date where you can learn a little about each other in a pressure-free environment. Stroll part of the enormous grounds around the young forests, getting familiar with each other as you go. At the edge of Gibraltar Creek Pine Forest are the Gibraltar Falls, one of Canberra's most romantic spots. Other outdoor activities include a hike up 195 metres to Black Mountain Tower, for the panoramic view of the city, and lunch at the cafe. A hike that can leave you breathless!

Canberra's temperate climate means there are many bars and restaurants with outdoor patios that offer outdoor dining. For example, the Siren Bar at the Adobe Hotel in Gungahlin is a great place to impress, sharing a bottle of wine on the big outdoor deck. Speaking of which...Canberra has a Wine District. Take a wine tasting tour, learning each other's tastes as you go. Canberra is also home to several 4-star restaurants, including Sage, at the Gorman House Arts Centre. Indoor and outdoor dining to suit the weather and the mood.
The art and theatre scene in the city is surpassed only by Sydney, giving cultured Canberra singles a chance to meet in one of the many galleries, museums, or at the Theatre Centre. Next to the High Court, art lovers will find the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, with its fascinating collection of historical portraiture. A nice way to spend an afternoon, perhaps with cocktails or dinner after at Water's Edge, and upscale restaurant with a great view.
