"“ One of Canberra’s NOT best kept secrets”"

Canberrans are proud of their City, and they will quickly correct anyone who says it’s boring. That’s why we love taking our visitors to Braddon, maybe to prove a point, and we don’t want it to be a secret .
With the creation of the pop up culture coming to life a few years ago now, and old buildings being torn down and replaced with funky apartments and unique shops, quickly transformed Braddon into a vibrant and fun place to be.
Places to thank the Hamlet, which gave us a relaxed come as you are place, where you could grab a slice of pizza from one of the street food vans, bring your own beer and sit for hours and listen to live music. Lonsdale Rosters Coffee, they became and still are so popular, that the owners needed to open two cafes in the same street to cater, and Bentspoke breweries, hopscotch, lazy su, 86 and 80/20 are just some of the businesses that should take their hats off and be congratulated for giving us, Canberrans some of the best places to eat and drink that we deserve.
To live here, it’s apartment living. Popular streets, Fawkner, Lonsdale, Mort, Torrens, Currong and Northbourne Ave.
If you are relocating, or just wanting to move locally I can help. To get in touch Susie.weaver@ljhooker.com.au or 02 6249 7700
