The Inner South, one of Canberra’s most sought-after locations

Our city has been designed to enrich the quality of life. Built on a blueprint that connects us with our community and surrounding nature, Canberra provides a huge opportunity to create a unique but perfect work/life balance, wherever you choose to live. 

The Inner South is one of the best examples. Situated close to the city centre, on the southern bank of beautiful Lake Burley Griffin, it is home to luscious, serene, leafy locales, as well as some of the country’s finest and most important institutions.

Standing as one of the oldest, grandest areas of Canberra, the whole region was built tendering to architect Walter Burley Griffin's design. Sometimes called the ‘political heart of the city’, it is home to some of Canberra’s most prestigious suburbs like Barton, Deakin, Forrest, Griffith, Kingston, Red Hill and Yarralumla.

A short distance from the city centre, the Inner South boasts a number of top schools and excellent healthcare facilities. Dotted with official residences, Art Deco houses, tended gardens and the diplomatic precinct, this is the place which even our Prime Minister calls home.  No wonder it’s increasingly popular with home buyers.

Manuka and Kingston are popular for their boutique shopping, café-lifestyle atmosphere and trendy restaurants. Kingston has recently been enhanced by the Kingston Foreshore waterfront development which features crash-pad style one bedroom apartments to large family townhouses.

Major attractions like the National Gallery of Australia, Questacon, Old Parliament House and Canberra Glassworks offer something for the whole family. Who wouldn’t want to own a house here?
