Bungendore Vs Canberra Suburbs

By PhilippIvanov 10 August 2010 22

Hi Everybody

I might be moving to Canberra for work early next year.

I was wondering if anyone could share views on living in Murrumbateman, Bundgendore (or any other satellite towns nearby) and commuting to Canberra daily.

Is it worthwhile in terms of lifestyle, house prices, environment?  or you’re better off getting a place in the ‘metropolitan’ Canberra and don’t worry about commuting.

Any advice will be appreciated.

What’s Your opinion?

Thanks, MrPC. Are there really houses for $300k? Everything in the Thomas Brick Court/Tennyson Mews/Gracelands estates seems to be around the $500k mark as well. Fair call about the mortgage stress. But even the rents are ridiculously high…

The drive between Queanbeyan and Bungendore looks like it shouldn’t be too bad with the new, improved Kings Highway. However, I do worry about icy roads and foggy mornings, kangaroos and scary drivers (although I may also be one of these!). I’m relocating from a village of 1300 where the closest services are about 120-140km away so the lure of a bigger centre is making me feel giddy.

Get yourself a Harley and it won’t matter how long you need to travel to work! Fuel will be cheap and every ride is party time. Oh and you can bypass nasty traffic jams by riding down the shoulder, tops!
