"Smallest Suburb in Canberra"

Oxley's claim to fame is that it is the smallest suburb in Canberra, covering an area of 1.08 km². It is located 15 kms south south west of Canberra. Due to its size it is almost exclusively a residential area. However, on the flip side nothing is too far away either. It is a well serviced area for all of the daily necessities and more. However, a car is needed to get around as public transport is a little lacking in the area.
Pros
  • Small community
  • Great parks and gardens
  • Family friendly
Cons
  • Public transport
  • Lack of local amenities
