Depends on the individual aircraft's empty weight, the fuel and payload on bard, the wind direction and speed, the temperature, the humidity and the altitude/atmospheric pressure.
That is to say, a 747 stripped of it's interior with minimum fuel taking off on a runway pointed right into a 50kt headwind at sea level on a dry -40F day will take off splendidly. A few thousand feet, perhaps?
Conversely, a fully loaded 747 with full fuel taking off with a 10 kt tailwind at an airport 13,000 feet in elevation on a hot humid day will an unimaginable amount of runway. 15,000ft+?
I suspect the answer to your question lies somewhere in between these 2 ridiculous extremes.

I just curious if there are more pictures with end of number URL address for an example: http://www.canberraairport.com.au/images/content/photos/enthusiasts_gallery/AEG23.JPG. You can change number 23 to 24 or any number you like to see.......right next to JPG there are more pictures in Australia. I found one of them I noticed a man with hat and red pant. He had barefeet walking down tarmac ramp! I can't see barely clear if he has barefeet or color shoes. Go check SRC=HTTP://www.canberraairport.com.au/images/content/photos/enthusiasts_gallery/AEG17.JPG>

Regarding Canberra, it may be the Nation's capital, but it is not a huge place by any means. I believe the population is around 300,000 (could be wrong on that). Inspite of the International moniker the airport has, there are no non-stop flights from CBR to any points outside of Australia.
