Forrest is one of the most coveted postcodes in the Australian capital city of Canberra. The suburb got its name from Sir John Forrest, one of the founding fathers of the Australian constitution. Its northern edge is bordered by the State Circle, just across the Parliament House.
A stone’s throw away from the man-made Lake Burley Griffin, Forrest is home to the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the entire country. It is one of the most expensive places in Australia to live in, with a median home price that just reached the AU$2 million mark. This is due to the low stock of homes in Forrest and high demand pushing prices up.
Record-breaking sales of multi-unit homes are not unheard of in this prestigious suburb, though that doesn’t mean that all buyers are priced out. Houses for sale are typically bungalows in contemporary or Federation-style architecture — sometimes, even Mediterranean — with a nice front lawn or landscaped garden.
Apartments are considered by residents as an affordable alternative to homes, with a median price that doesn’t break the bank. Current developments in the suburb include multi-family real estate and mixed-use developments.
Forrest has a number of primary schools and childcare centres, hotels and public spaces. Nearby Manuka and Kingston offer a number of lifestyle choices for residents, including fine dining restaurants, cafés and retail shops.
