Is Lyneham a good suburb?

Lyneham is one of the oldest yet constantly evolving suburbs, ranked by locals the 6th best suburb in Greater Canberra for living. The suburb experienced an inflow of young bohemians, students, professionals and couples with children who were attracted by Lyneham’s tree-lined streets, proximity to the CBD’s amenities, great public transportation, and local schools.

The majority of the population evolved a lot with the area itself: today’s Lyneham is home for young individuals, couples with or without children of 20 to 39 years old. Students, hipsters and freelancers now work in local coffee shops, swap books and enjoy art or outdoor activities.

Local schooling and institutional options are numerous, but Lyneham is only 4km away from Canberra, which means Lyneham dwellers can enjoy all the capital’s amenities. It has become a perfect mix between heritage and youth and an ideal place to start a family or spend your best independent years.
