Hugging the southern edge of Red Hill, Garran is a leafy and sought-after suburb for families in the Woden Valley.
The suburb itself boasts three schools and its own local shops, while the retail, restaurants, offices and transport hub of Woden Town Centre is just a stone’s throw away.
While these days it’s a medical hub, and home to Canberra Hospital and many specialists, all of Garran’s streets are named after Australian writers.
