As a new Australian National University student, one of the first places you should visit is Kambri. Located along University Avenue, the plaza is the centre of the campus. It also contains one of the universities two bars – Badger and Co. The other bar is located in the Lena Karmel Lodge run by Unilodge. Also within the plaza are several cafes, a bookstore and an asian grocer. Next to the plaza is the Chiefly Library, another central location on the uni.
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 placemaking and gathering to the ANU.ANU
The avenue is often home to art installations and protests, making it a good place to spend time.
