"Discover It for Yourself"

Cook is located 6kms west north west of Canberra. It has a local kindergarten but no local primary or high schools. However, they are only 5 minutes away. It has a ballet school, which is excellent. Cook has a small local shopping centre with a small independent supermarket. Major retailers are around 10 minutes away in Belconnen. It has a multicultural feel with around 30% of its people having been born overseas. It is a nice peaceful area in which to raise a family.
