"Hidden in plane sight"

Florey is the closest suburb to the Belconnen CBD, only 5 minutes walk to Westfield, minutes from Benjamin Way, parks, play areas, schools, walking tracks, Lake Ginninderra & the food precinct.

Everyone already knows that Florey is convenient, but most people don't know that it is a quiet & well planned suburb offering wide streets, established gardens and room to relax. The suburb has loads to offer and is sometimes overlooked as a desirable-to-live location for the wrong reasons.

When asked about what residents love about living in Florey - most say it is great for quiet living close to town, near to Schools and a safe family friendly environment. Comparably to suburbs in the immediate vicinity crime is low and people generally are not worries above and beyond locking the front door!

Florey also offers a medical centre, shopping complex - with take away dining, chemist, hairdressers and convenience/grocery store.
Pros
  • Close to westfield
  • good for transport to the city
  • good local shopping centre and schools

"Convenience, schooling, public transport"

Highly sought after by families with school age children, Florey is centrally located in Belconnen and Florey homeowners benefit from two primary schools, and a secondary high school and college with St Francis Xavier. It is within close proximity to the Belconnen Mall (depending on what part of Florey you are in it's a 3-5 minute drive, and also has good access to major roads that feed to the City Centre. The local shopping centre has pretty much everything you could need, including a couple of great eateries and an IGA supermarket
