KINGSTON

Get to know
the area

Leafy Kingston, with its sleek new foreshore and an ever-growing roster of chic hangouts, has fast-tracked its way to being one of the city’s most desirable postcodes. There’s a lot to love about this waterside suburb; on-trend dining and bars, cultural centres and destination markets – and all with glorious views of Lake Burley Griffin.

Lifestyle

Ideally positioned along Lake Burley Griffin and moments from Capital Hill, stylish Kingston is a shining light when it comes to urban living. There’s a lot going on, from barista-infused cafés to lively nightlife; and things are only set to improve.  

Of late, all eyes have been on Kingston Foreshore. Development has been in full swing, bringing gleaming apartments and townhouses and a swathe of on-trend dining hot spots and bars. Walking paths and cycling trails hug the lake’s edge, and foreshore parks provide ample space to soak up the breezy lifestyle. 

Sundays, the Old Bus Depot Markets delivers on the goods – gourmet food stalls, one-off fashion and handmade crafts. Steps away is Canberra Glassworks, a cultural hub with exhibitions and glassblowing demonstrations.

Kingston Shopping Centre is a well-worn shopping strip that has everything you need, including Green Square, a meeting spot for locals. But it’s the area’s array of dining options, chic bars and laid-back pubs that fuels Kingston’s nightlife. 

And for those who crave outdoor action, there are plenty of parks and sporting facilities to choose from, such as Telopea Park, Jack Ross Park, Manuka Stadium and Kingston Oval. The Jerrabomberra Wetlands are close, but it’s Lake Burley Griffin that provides the fun of kayaking, sailing and paddle boating. With so much going on, Kingston’s appeal isn’t hard to pin down.

Neighbours

On-trend Kingston is a stylish locale. It’s also one of Canberra’s most densely populated suburbs, and with all that’s going on, it’s no wonder this compact suburb has broad appeal. 

Due to the prime location, politically-minded public servants are naturally drawn to this neck of the woods. Cashed-up professionals, who want an exclusive lifestyle by the water reside in the many shiny new apartments and townhouses that overlook Lake Burley Griffin. And growing families are quick to nab one of the brick cottages.
