I’m from Sydney and moving to Canberra for good. My husband is renting in Gunaghlin but as a family we would like to move to an area that has established public schools for my kids. We have heard great things about Turner School/Lyneham Primary/ Lyneham High in inner North, and Garran Primary/Curtin Primary/Red Hill Primary/Telopea Park High in inner South, and would like to buy a place in their PEA.
We have done some basic research and the following suburbs are now on my list for home hunting:
However, we know nothing about these suburbs and would like to know more about them before buying a property there. Some of my questions include:
Are these suburbs family friendly and safe to live in for young families? I am aware that the inner South seem to be more expensive than the inner north and would like to know why? How is the internet like in those areas?
Ideally we would like to get a house with a backyard for ~$800-850k but we are also happy to get a townhouse instead for a place in inner South. Thanks in advance for your help!
