"community spirit"

We have lived at Anula for 10 years and have happily raised our children here. The reason why we have lived here for so long is that this suburb has access to beautiful shady, well maintained parklands with great walking/bike paths that stretch towards neighbouring areas. Our children love playing at the local playgrounds and oval. The local shop has a great chinese dining/takeaway, deli, hairdresser and not too far up the road there is a larger shopping precinct where we buy our groceries/ food stuff, attend doctor, atm machine, other takeaway outlets, bakery etc. Everything is so close by to this suburb and if you are a sports fanatic, access to the Marrara stadium is within walking distance, plus the airport! We find the area to be quiet and relaxing, safe and sound and would recommend families to move to this place....we intend to stay for quite awhile, value for money if you decide to buy here!
Pros
  • well maintained parklands/playgrounds
  • local shops are great
  • lovely walk/bike paths
Cons
  • no nightclubs
  • no nightlife

"Undiscovered Suburb"

24% parkland...family life, close to airport, Casuarina Shopping Complex, Darwin Golf Course, Hospital, Water park etc. We have lived here for over 7 years, after previously living in Bayview (supposedly an upmarket marina estate). We have looked at upgrading due to family size increasing over the years, but have decided on renovating as the suburb has more to offer than most of the so called 'premier' suburbs. Friendly, relaxing and quiet neighbourhood with close proximity to all major facilities. I jog and ride bikes with the kids at all hours through the parks and have enjoyed every minute of it. Love it!!!

OBE65 Hi, sorry for the late post. After living in Anula for over 10 years I believe Anula is a friendly area. We have great neighbours and enjoy the location and the accessibility to shops, supermarkets, airport and hospital. Peter Bourke is the Immunologist at the Darwin Hospital, who is excellent, so your daughter should be in good hands.

"Great Suburb"

Anula located in the Northern Surbubs is ideal for living in the Tropics. The suburb is located not only close to facilities ie schools, shopping, medical etc but has some of the finest parklands in Darwin with great bike tracks & sporting facilities. It has a spacious open feel about it.
