"The bIggest suburb in Canberra with close access to all facilities and bush land"

Bordered by the Murrimbidgee River corridor and the Brindabella Ranges, Kambah is a well established suburb with nature on your doorstep, yet a 10 minute drive to everything Canberra offers.
Pros
  • Close to great shopping precincts
  • Great road infrastructure
  • Surrounded by bushland with a good native bird population
Cons
  • There are good and not so good areas
  • Public housing is low density and concentrated in small pockets
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees
  • Country Lovers

threekids I can remember going to Kambah as a thirteen year old to see my brother and sister in law when they bought their first house there and it was the last suburb in South Canberra, we ended up my hsuband and I buying our first house in Gordon and that really has become the last suburb in Canberra down south, because beyond that is Tharwa just over the hill.

"Large & Diverse area"

As Kambah is the largest suburb in the country, it's spread over quite a large area. With this comes great diversity in all categories. There are some really nice areas and streets within Kambah, such as Gleneagles estate, and some not so great areas in East Kambah. Overall though, it's pretty good. Has a shopping village and OK public transport links (not the best by any means). Is close to Tuggeranong and Woden town centres and schools. Internet access varies depending on where you are. Nice and quiet for families and such.
Pros
  • Good local schools
  • Nice community
  • Close to great shopping precincts
  • Great road infrastructure
  • Surrounded by bushland with a good native bird population
Cons
  • Nightlife
  • Was ranked in top 10 most bogan suburbs
  • Public housing is low density and concentrated in small pockets
  • There are good and not so good areas
