Default ACT - State Sponsorship

Hi All,
Well I am planning to apply for a state sponsorship for ACT (Australian Capital Territory) as i want to apply for 176 visa. Actually I had some different plans of applying for 175 visa but after 3 unsuccessful attempts of IELTS i will settle for the 15 points which means I am 115 points so the option I have is state sponsorship and my ASCO code is also there in the demand list of Canberra.
Coming back to my question - I wanted to know about Canberra. How is the place?climate?people?job opportunities etc (If someone from Canberra help me out as I will be having an Obligation of stayin IN ACT for 2 years. Just want to hear something straight from the Horses mouth :-)

Regards,
Abhijeet

Hi Abhijeet,

There's been a recent post on Canberra at:
Canberra - Whats it like?

To find any other specific posts try doing a search since it's much easier than going through all the threads since we are so busy

Regards,
Karen
