I am an inner-north resident of 7 years, but need some advice for a friend moving from Canada to live in Canberra.
I fear I am slightly biased towards recommending an inner-north location, and would prefer to have a more balanced view for her to consider before deciding on the best place for rental accommodation. I have a feeling this topic has been discussed here before, but for the life of me couldn’t find any articles that were relevant.
Her priorities are:
“A walkable/bikeable neighbourhood, with good access to parks, fruits/veggie stores, natural food stores, and other amenities. Also reasonable commute to work (by the airport) and yoga studio that I’ll likely join (in Mitchell). I’d like to live in a bohemian/artsy community but one that is safe and clean.”
My first thought was O’Connor, but I’m not a ‘bohemian/artsy’ person so not really sure on that point??!
Any recommendations would be very much appreciated!
