"Bonner a new suburb like none"

Masterplan and with best of everything.
If you compare bonner with the other new suburbs of Canberra all it takes is one drive.

It's the least cramped wide roads and best planned, almost like it's saved from the private planners that ruined the rest of them.
Now there are plenty of things already here like oval, 64 million public school (that's right), woollies.
Amaroo group centre opens 2017 with Coles Anchor tenant and other speciality stores.

Proximity to Ford means Bergman private school Linear Park are all within reach without feeling of living on cramped roads fantastic in every way.

Views from top of Hill are breathtaking only 13km from city it's got huge connectivity boost with majura parkway fully operational in 2017 and road planners have done a great job.

Bonner also has cat containment area with streets marked.

Hilltop reserves Mulligans flat backdrop telstra tower views list is endless.

Honestly if you need night life live in non family friendly neighbourhood near city or urban areas.

However once amaroo group centre opens there's gonna be plenty of choice for eating out.
Pros
  • Family friendly
  • Great parks and gardens

It has a local primary school and a high school less than 5 kms away. There are sporting grounds all around the suburb. The Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve is a fantastic place to explore with the family and see an abundance of bird life as well as frogs, lizards, wallabies and sugar gliders.
