Situated just 2km east of the Gungahlin Town Centre, everything a couple or family could need is easily accessible.

Primary schools, shopping centres, parks, medical centres and restaurants are all within a stone’s throw of virtually anywhere in the suburb.

Along with amenities like clubs, department stores and libraries, significant effort has been put into transport.

A network of cycle ways and pedestrian paths now criss-cross the suburb.

Together with well serviced bus routes, Harrison is well connected with the city and neighbouring suburbs.

Harrison is also a lot less expensive than nearby Nicholls ($500,000) and Forde ($522,000).
