The location

Located to Canberra’s south and to the east of the Murrumbidgee River, Tuggeranong is a picturesque suburban region renown for being family friendly and accessible, with easy travel to the Canberra CBD via the Monaro Highway. The suburbs within the greater Tuggeranong district are nestled on the shores of lake Tuggeranong, a man-made lake ringed by great parklands, community facilities and walking tracks, and the lake itself provides residents with a popular and convenient location for watersports of all kinds. The district is also close to the pastoral scenery of southern ACT, with several historic estates in the area including the Tuggeranong homestead – a popular location for weddings, events, and the home of the Tuggeranong Homestead markets.

The practice itself is centrally located in the Hyperdome shopping precinct and adjacent to the lakeside parklands. It’s easily accessible from the Tuggeranong Bus Interchange and taxi ranks, with ample parking available.

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.
