"Quintessential Country Living"

MacArthur is located around 14 kms south of Canberra. It has a great country feel with the horse agistment paddocks. Wanniassa Hills Nature Reserve in MacArthur is part of the extensive Canberra Nature Park network. It doesn't have any local shops to speak of but a major shopping centre is less than 10 minutes away. Likewise MacArthur doesn't have any local school but there are a number only 5 minutes away. It is an idyllic setting in which to raise a family.

  • Great parks and gardens
Cons
