Location, location, location
Situated just 20 minutes from the heart of Canberra, Gungahlin offers a friendly small-town atmosphere without the hubbub of a larger city.
It has all the amenities you need, such as shopping and leisure centres and plenty of sports fields and open parks.
Its location also makes for the perfect place to set up home with the ACT's main town centres all within easy reach.
There is a host of schools in and around Gungahlin catering to all ages and needs.
Burgmann Anglican School, Ngunnawal Primary School and Gungahlin College are all located within Gungahlin for a start, making the area the perfect place to watch your children grow.
In addition to the proposed expansion of Gungahlin's residential sector, which will bring about thousands of new homes, the development of nearby Throsby was recently approved and is set to add to the growth of the region.
