"A strange town"

Meh it's overated and very expensive. It has flat geography, oddly Captains Flat and Tarago (has nicer buildings and actually got hills/slopes) are much more interesting and you never hear about them.

I see nothing but guys looking like faggots (they dye their hair blue and pink) and the women are ugly and look like horses. All the families remind me of the cast of Modern Family.

People here don't live the country lifestyle. Yet the average Bungendorian would insist their quarter acre picket-fenced "property" with 2 kids, a dog and 9-5 Canberran APS career would insist they're living a rugged stockman lifestyle.......

Not the real country town everybody makes it out to be!

"Rural lifestyle so close to Canberra and the NSW South Coast"

If you're looking for a tree-change and can land a job in Canberra, Bungendore is a great pick. Just 40 mins into Canberra each day for work, and one hour the other direction through Braidwood to Bateman's Bay, Bungendore is perfectly positioned to provide you with a great country lifestyle.

The town itself may take a little while to charm you, but there is loads on offer like cafes, restaurants, pubs, local wineries, a public school and great community atmosphere.

Get in quick! Bungendore's proximity to Canberra makes it attractive and the prices are climbing as more and more people seek a country lifestyle with all the benefits of being so close to Canberra.
