The city hosts fabulous architecture and large green areas with around 12 million trees, well outnumbering its population of 456,000.
For the traditional custodians of this land, ‘Kambri’ has been a meeting place for thousands of years. The name was gifted to the ANU by representatives of the Little Gudgenby River Tribal Council, Buru Ngunawal Aboriginal Corporation, King Brown Tribal Group, and the Ngarigu Currawong Clan.
The Kambri cultural precinct offers a new educational, physical, creative and social experience in a village setting. In time, this contemporary community space hopes to bring the spirit of place-making and gathering to the ANU.
