The location

Calwell is a suburb in the Tuggeranong district of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory. Shaded by Australian natives as well as lush European greenery, Calwell’s long tree-lined streets are quiet, and full of filtered sunlight. Located further out from the city centre, this suburb is tidy, tranquil, family-friendly, and affordable – and being located close to the Monaro Highway, it does have direct access to Canberra’s CBD.

Calwell is a great area for nature lovers and those who like to keep fit outdoors, as it adjoins Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve. Many properties in the area have been designed in a spacious, modern style, and positioned so as to take full advantage of the views of the natural landscape, especially of the stunning Brindabella Range.

Living & working in the ACT

Big city amenities ...

Australia’s capital city, Canberra boasts a number of nationally and culturally significant monuments and institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery,  Australian Institute of Sport, the University of Canberra, the Royal Australian Mint, the National GalleryParliament House, and the Australian War Memorial.


... without the big city hassle

Canberra stands alone among Australia’s cities for its lush garden-city inspired boulevards and geometric design motifs. Designed by celebrated American architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin, the city’s layout makes it one of Australia’s most livable places.

Known as a “twenty minute city”, Canberra’s relative lack of congestion and abundance of public transport options makes commuting a painless affair.

Educational opportunities

Canberra’s education offerings include a broad range of both public and private schools that are highly regarded. Canberra boasts an above average number of excellent tertiary institutions including The University of Canberra, the Australian Institute of Sport and the Australian National University among others.


A sports mecca

Canberra also offers a strong active lifestyle – the wide and meandering Lake Burley Griffin is used heavily for rowing and boating, and the many car-free avenues and parks make it friendlier than most cities to bike traffic. Mountain bikers are spoilt for choice, with nearby trails includes Mt Stromlo, Majura Pines and Kowen Forest. Meanwhile, both Perisher and Thredbo are a 2.5h drive away for a quick ski trip.
