Where to live in Canberra?

Where to live in Canberra?

Although real estate in Canberra can be pricey, particularly in affluent suburbs like Red Hill, there are more budget-friendly areas.  Suburbs around the city centre (Civic etc) tend to have a lot of units and apartments. Manuka and Kingston have a reputation for being ‘café suburbs’ so if you like your coffee…

Colourful Dickson, Braddon and Turner are also close to the CBD and more affordable than some other areas in the vicinity.  Ainslie is an older suburb with easy access to the university, botanical gardens and Black Mountain.  Woden, Belconnen, Tuggeranong (‘Nappy Valley’) and Gungahlin (the new Tuggeranong) are also good options.

What are the pros and cons of moving to Canberra And The Australian Capital Territory?

Canberra is Australia’s ‘bush capital’, which may be a pro if you fancy living in a city with a large country town vibe.  But it’s also a LONG way to the nearest beach so beach lovers may rule Canberra out of contention.

However, whilst Canberra and the ACT may be small in stature, they do offer plenty of bang for your buck in terms of things to do and see. That’s a pro for most people. As the nation’s capital, there is a lot of heritage-related culture on offer – including the Australian War Memorial and museum and Parliament House etc.

Unemployment rates in the ACT are below the national average and the federal government is by far its biggest employer.  Furthermore, due to the high number of public servants that call Canberra home, it’s generally considered a very educated city, with education facilities to match.

Foodies will also love Canberra’s dining scene because it is world-class.  As are its shopping, cultural and entertainment amenities. Canberra’s weather can also be a bit ‘fresh’ in winter but the summers more than makeup for it.

Canberra however is expensive, which is probably its biggest con at the moment.  Prices have sky-rocketed over recent years, to the point where it now competes with Sydney for the title of Australia’s most expensive place to live! As a trade-off – traffic jams are almost unheard of, and the city was planned from the start to be easy to navigate.

Where to live in Canberra and Australian Capital Territory?

Where to live in Australian Capital Territory? 

Most of the ACT outside Canberra is covered by the Namadji National Park so towns are few and far between.  There are a handful – Hall, Naas, Tharwa, Uriarra and Williamsdale.

Queanbeyan is often thought of in association with the ACT but it is in fact just over the border in NSW.  However, if you’re looking for a bigger ‘metropolis’ outside Canberra that is still ‘kind of’ part of the ACT, this may be it.

Outside of those ‘major’ towns, there are a few smaller settlements like Rocky Crossing and Glendale Crossing.  Hume and Royalla are right on the ACT/NSW border.
