Only a few minutes from the ACT’s border with NSW is Queanbeyan, fondly referred to as “Quangers”.
The region is rich in history, with an abundance of historic buildings and an old-town feel that exudes charm and character.
It’s often said that Queanbeyan offers a country lifestyle with city benefits. It’s a viable alternative to living in Canberra, while still being close enough to easily access all the facilities of the capital.
“It’s unbelievably close to Canberra so of course, Queanbeyan also benefits from Canberrans moving across the border to live there,” said Lucy MacGregor of Ian McNamee & Partners Queanbeyan/Jerrabomberra/Canberra.
‘The Q’ at the Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre is one of the region’s leading cultural institutions and regularly hosts live theatre and music. Another popular local attraction is the Queanbeyan Markets, which take place on the third Sunday of each month.
Surrounding areas such as the Googong Foreshores also give residents an opportunity to its nature reserves as well as walking tracks and boating facilities. The area features quality restaurants.
“Queanbeyan offers both an old-town charming feel to it, mature trees and country feel all-round but it also has newer areas like Googong and so much more development that will be sure to attract even more Canberrans and NSW residents to move here,” Ms MacGregor said.
