"United Nations Comes to Canberra"

O'Malley is located 11 kms south south west of Canberra. It is the embassy precinct of the city. There are no primary schools in the local or surrounding areas. However, there are both high schools and kindergartens. There is a major shopping centre just down the road where there are ample restaurants and variety of shops. The Canberra Hospital is just across Hindmarsh Drive. There are also plenty of parklands to enjoy. It is very expensive but I think it is worth the money to live in this exclusive pocket of Canberra.
Pros
  • Great for people interested in diplomatic service
  • Great parks and gardens
Cons
  • Public transport
  • No local primary school
  • Expensive housing
