A standout suburb of beauty in a city full of life and greenery, Narrabundah was the obvious selection to expand the Abode Hotel name.
Narrabundah’s original residents moved in by the late 1920’s and the suburb is known for its community values, native and exotic plant life and panoramic views of the capital. The town centre includes a supermarket, bakery, welfare centre, top tier restaurants, a real estate agency and more, with plans for major growth in the near future. The suburb also boasts a golf course, pitch and putt course and many playing ovals.
Some of the noted elements of Narrabundah that residents enjoy include peace and privacy, local amenity, established gardens and open spaces, safety, central to the rest of Canberra, a keen sense of community and well-planned and well-laid out areas resulting in an aesthetically pleasing suburb – much to look forward to for your stay.*
Perhaps the best thing about Narrabundah is the open spaces bursting with natural beauty.
If you are in interested in a quiet stroll, spotting fascinating Australian animals and plant life from all corners of the world then Narrabundah is the suburb to explore.
Home to the Narrabundah Tors, a walk to Carnegie Street will lead you to great granite boulders to climb and take in the breathtaking 360 degree views of Canberra.
The Mill Creek Corridor invites you to see its connection with the Jerrabomberra Wetlands and eventually Lake Burley Griffin that allows a diverse range of animals and plants to thrive within it. The creek is currently subject to a Landcare program that will enhance the Corridor’s size and beauty.
A grand open space that joins Narrabundah Neighbourhood Oval and Mill Creek Oval is perfect for kicking the football, exercise of all kinds and has play equipment for kids and families.
The open spaces don’t stop there with six informal and formal playing fields for sports including cricket, football and rugby and also the more informal recreational activities. And not to mention, Narrabundah Baseball Park; home of the Canberra Cavalry, the resident golf course and pitch n putt course for every skill level. Plans are firmly in place for future expansion of existing open urban spaces and plans to create new spaces.
Minutes from the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets, a short drive from trendy shopping and restaurant precincts in Manuka and Kingston, and perfectly centred between the city and the airport, Narrabundah is already a hit amongst Abode Hotel guests. If you haven’t already, give it a try the next time you’re in town.
