Description

The Space

We are located within a 10-minute drive from Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC), 14 minutes from Parliament House, National Library, National Art Gallery, The Portrait Gallery and Questacon. Other attractions within a similar driving distance are the National Dinosaur Museum, Cockington Green Gardens (a display of miniature buildings and gardens from around the world), Canberra Walk-in Aviary and the National Zoo and Aquarium. A little further afield (50 minute drive) is the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex that is "one of only three tracking facitlities in the world responsible for providing vital two-way radio contact with dozens of unmanned, robotic spacecraft exploring our Solar System and beyond. In the Visitor Centre, you will discover the story of Australia's role in the past, present and future of space exploration." Close by is the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve that is committed to conserving Australia's endangered species through breeding and maintaining insurance population. It works in conjunction with the Australian National University, Mulligan's Flat and ACT Government. For more information please visit their website - (URL HIDDEN)

Guest Access

The washing machine here is available. However, there is a laundromat quite close by offering self-service or full service by their staff. More details in the House Manual. The gas Weber Family Q BBQ, on the verandah above the apartment, is available to all guests.

Interaction with Guests

When you confirm a booking, I will give you my mobile number and will be happy to assist in any way that I can to make your stay enjoyable and entertaining.

The Neighborhood

Weetangera is a quiet suburban area with good local shopping available. We Have a Woolworths supermarket, a quality butcher shop, 2 bakeries, chemist, newsagency, post office and a number of restaurants and takeaway shops. ANZ and St George also have ATMs there. The Ginninderra Medical Centre is close and it has a pharmacy that is open from 8am until 10pm so help is available 7 days a week. Belconnen Mall (Westfields) is less than 10 minutes drive away and has all the usual shops open 7 days a week. Belconnen Fresh Food Markets provide a good choice of vegetables, meats, fish, chicken and delicatessen items - open Wednesday to Sunday.

Getting Around

A regular public bus service is available from the Hawker shops (5-minute walk) going into the city and I will have a timetable available here. If you are arriving by bus, plane or train, I am happy to pick you up if I am available at the time. Otherwise, taxis and Uber are available.

Other Things to Note

Canberra is renowned for its nature reserves and we a lucky to have the Pinnacles reserve, with pleasant views to the Brindabellas, across the road and five minutes walk from the house. It is a very pleasant area to walk in early on a summer's morning when the kangaroos are grazing and the birds are about. In the winter months, a walk at midday is more pleasant on a sunny day. Other walks a short drive away are the Botanic Gardens and the Black Mountain walk.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
