"Great for family, look elsewhere for nightlife"

Surrounded by picturesque mountains in the valley of Tuggeranong, Gordon has the best of everything - beautiful bush walking at your doorstep to escape the daily grind along with easily accessible public transport and on average not more than 20-30 mins from the city centre; less than 5 mins to convenience stores and a larger shopping mall (tuggeranong hyperdome). From living in Gordon 22 years id recommend it to anyone who's looking for a safe, low key child friendly neighbourhood. Definitely worth checking out the christmas lights in December - Rated some of the best in Canberra!
Pros
  • Quiet neighbourhood, child friendly with lots of backyards and playgrounds
  • Range of housing options for each budget
  • Excellent land for price value, no problems with parking
Cons
  • No nightlife
  • Must travel to the city (buses stop at midnight and taxis are expensive)
  • Crime can be a problem around Lanyon shops
