A suburb of the Belconnen district of Canberra, Dunlop is located at the far north-west edge of Canberra, near the border with the state of New South Wales. It has home-protected parklands like the Dunlop Grasslands Nature Reserve, and several waterways, such as the West Belconnen Pond.

Properties with views to these natural wonders attract a premium, and although the suburb is popular with families, there are no schools within Dunlop’s borders. In the nearby suburbs of Charnwood, Fraser and Macgregor, there are several public and independent schools. There are also eight childrens’ playgrounds and several walking and cycling paths.

Over the last 12 months the available stock on market has decreased considerably, which has driven price growth of more than 7%. Local agents point to Dunlop’s peace and quiet as the main drawcards for buyers and renters alike, particularly established families who are seeking affordable larger homes.
