"Practical yet stylish and peaceful."

Tightly held suburb .. very soon to see escalation in real estate prices. With large block sizes, quiet peaceful living and proximity to both the Belconnen city & Canberra CBD areas, Scullin is a great choice of place to buy or rent for all age groups. Public transport abounds as do all other amenities so I do not understand the cons listed above.. possibly outdated. It is close enough to city living to be convenient & practical and far enough from it to be peaceful. It is the place to be. It is bounded by 4 of Canberra's great arterial roads: Belconnen Way, Southern Cross road, Coulter drive and Kingsfordsmith Drive which makes it an easy drive to most other locations. You will have quick & easy access to bulk billing and hospital facilities apart from other healthcare facilities like physios, Psychologists etc . Canberra nightlife as a whole is nothing to speak of but easy access to the CBD & Belconnen from Scullin can give you some of what is available in Canberra. Also quite a safe suburb. Highly recommended.
Pros
  • Good Public transport
  • Access to important main roads
  • Close to health care and schooling facilities
  • Close to the city
  • Family friendly
  • Great parks and gardens
Cons
  • Would like to see Scullin Shops develop a bit more

"Get in Quick Great Family Area"

Scullin is located about 10 kms west north west of Canberra. The local shops in Hawker are able to provide of of the daily necessities. Also Westfiled Belconnen is only a short drive away. It is a family friendly area with plenty of parkland to enjoy. It is a very sought after area and you have act quickly to buy into the area. Homes with more land are especially valued. There are plenty of grand old homes in need of a little modernisation. It is only 15 minutes from the city and the airport is only 30 minutes away.
Pros
  • Close to the city
  • Family friendly
  • Great parks and gardens
Cons
  • Fire prone area
