There’s a lot to love about our capital city.

Nestled between Sydney and the Snowy Mountains, Canberra, with its surf, snow, stunning scenery, fantastic foodie scene and cultural treasures, has a lot to offer.

It’s also cheaper than both Melbourne and Sydney — to live, rent and buy.

Here, we’ve round-up some of the best affordable doer-uppers in Canberra on the market right now.

A nice facade.
