"Oasis in the Heart of the City"

Lyneham is located around 3 kms north north west of Canberra. It is home to the second oldest church in Canberra. It has a mix of older heritage homes and modern townhouses. It has wonderful tree lined streets and beautiful established gardens. It has much to enjoy including the many festivals held at EPIC some of which are the Royal Canberra Show, the National Folk Festival and Summernats. There are many scenic walking tracks, a thriving cafe culture and plenty of sporting facilities. It is the perfect place to raise a family without being far from the vibrant life of the city.
