The Canberra campus of the University of New South Wales is located at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA). ADFA is located in an Australian bushland setting less than five kilometres from the city centre and the Canberra airport.

Canberra is a modern city just over ninety years old, chosen as Australia's national capital in 1908 as a diplomatic solution when both Melbourne and Sydney wanted the role. Its name comes form the local Aboriginal word 'Kamberra' meaning 'meeting place'.
