"Tree change with all the trimmings"

A beautiful semi-rural/residential suburb approx 25 mins from Canberra and 20 mins from Queanbeyan. Well serviced by buses for all schools in the Canberra/Queanbeyan region, Wamboin has it all. A lively community association hosts a number of local events throughout the year, including the famous annual Bonfire and Fireworks show and the Car Boot Sale!! Wamboin enjoys a coastal climate with beautiful easterly breezes on those hot summer evenings; often it snows in winter and there is an abundance of wild-life to enjoy. It is not unusual to see echidnas, wombats, wallabies, kangaroos and a huge array of birds in the area. Wedge-tail eagle sigtings are common. Demand for Wamboin properties is increasing as many from the city realise the benefits of rural living for their children and the wonderful lifestyle that is offered so close to town. Some families commute further from Canberra suburbs than those of us in Wamboin. There's regular pony club and a produce market and operates twice each month except for Jul and Aug. All in all, it is no wonder that real estate is becoming increasingly difficult to find in Wamboin as it is Canberra's best kept secret....undoubtedly.
