"Location location convenience."

Located in Canberra’s Woden Valley, Chifley is the epitome of convenience and evolution. Woden shopping Centre is within walking distance and The Canberra Hospital is a 7 minute drive away. Tuggeranong parkway is close and easily accessible to this mature Suburb. Thanks to all this convenience, many of the old homes are being replaced by beautiful and sleek modern homes which house many professionals and some executives. The Capital growth in this suburb will likely continue for many years.

"Where the World Comes to Canberra"

Chifley is located about 9 kms south south west of Canberra. Its backdrop of Mount Taylor with its ajoining parkland gives it a picturesque setting. It is a multicultural suburb, which gives it life and colour. It has a local shopping centre which provides all of the daily necessities and more. There are plenty of open green areas and sporting venues for children to get active. It also has a small local preschool. However, schools are located further away. It is still a great place to raise a family.
