Narrabundah is a mature suburb known for its leafy estates. It is located on the inner south-west of the city of Canberra and straddles a large section of land above the Capitol Golf Club. It borrows its name from the Ngunnawal word which translates to “bird of prey”.

Narrabundah is famed for its pin oaks that lend neighbourhoods warmth and colour during the changing seasons. Its abundant gardens and parks also make it a popular suburb of choice among Canberrans and those moving into the capital city, with the Rocky Knob park in Upper Narrabundah a resident favourite.

Just like its surrounding suburbs, Narrabundah’s residents prize its greenery, myriads of open spaces and recreational facilities, and tight-knit community. It has access to two primary schools, an esteemed secondary school, Narrabundah College, a church and a number of lifestyle hubs.

These dwelling structures were followed by the brick townhomes of the 1950s, some of which are being considered as heritage properties. Today, Narrabundah’s housing stock is composed of both these brick duplexes and spacious bungalows in Federation and contemporary style, as well as apartment blocks. Houses for sale in Narrabundah are mostly townhomes.
