"Green and leafy, but you pay for it."

A good suburb in the inner north of Canberra. easy access to Dickson shops which has a Woolies, a post office and a bunch of specialty stores. Also near the "Chinatown of Canberra" which is also in North Dickson. Public transport is close by and there are playing fields really close.
But it is an expensive suburb but it is lovely to live in. I have never felt unsafe walking from work at night. An older suburb and the housing reflects this.
Pros
  • Lots of trees
  • Close to shops
Cons
  • Very expensive
  • Housing is older
