Chabad ACT welcomes you to the Nation's Capital, Canberra.

Canberra is home to numerous visitors and guests and is well equipped with hotels/motels, public transport and great tourist destinations. Chabad ACT is constantly servicing the needs of local residents and the growing number of visitors in our City. If you are coming for Shabbat or a Chag, Chabad ACT does have some accomodation options and the Rabbi and Rebbetzin and others can host you for your Shabbat meals. For hotels, the closest accomodation to the Shul is the Pommy Tree Inn in Evatt which is a 20 minute walk. 15 minutes further out you have several nice resorts to choose from in the lovely Gold Creek Village. See our Canberra Kosher page for Kosher information. 

When you move to Canberra you realize that it is the best kept secret of Australia. The housing is much more affordable than in the other major Australian cities and the lifestyle and services available make it ideal for raising a family. 

If you are moving to Canberra please consider making Giralang in northern Canberra your residence so that you could be close to all the services that we provide and integrate into our wonderful growing community. Please also let us know in advance so we could give you valuable free advice to help you plan your move.

Chabad ACT services the spiritual, social and educational needs of the Jewish and broader community. See below for many of the services on offer.
