Location & facilities

The CBA is in a unique location with world-class biological research facilities based at ANU (Acton) and CSIRO (Black Mountain), Canberra.


Canberra is Australia’s capital city with a population of 358,000. It is 150km from Australia's east coast with an elevation of approximately 580m. The city's design incorporates significant areas of remnant native vegetation (grassland and woodland) that has earned Canberra the title 'the bush capital'.


ANU and CSIRO are adjacent to each other at the base of Black Mountain in Canberra
