"Great Place for Families"

Banks is a pleasant little suburb. It is the southernmost suburb located 21 kms from Canberra. The suburb's incline runs west north west. This is perfect for hang gliders who take off from Big Monks Mountain located to the east of the of Banks and can be seen gliding across the suburb. It is just beyond the Rob Roy Nature park, which is the perfect place to explore with the children on a sunny afternoon. You may even see horse riders as you explore the bush tracks.

It has a very small local shopping centre, which is perfect to top up those daily necessities. It is a very family friendly area, as the blocks are big, allowing ample room for the family back yard.
