"Multicultural Mawson"

Mawson is located aound 10 kms south south west of Canberra. It has plenty of recreational areas with the driving range, tennis club and various playing fields. There is a significant senior population with the location of the Dyraaba Court Retirement Village in the suburb. The multicultural flavour is especially seen in the Mawson Primary School which has a Mandarin Immersion Program and in the location of the Mandir Hindu Temple in the suburb. The Southlands Centre is a significant commercial and shopping precinct. It is a desirable area for families who wish to be close to older extended family members.
