    Maybe start here. I have a 4 week old and will be looking for play groups soon. I may end up in a play group in gungahlin due to lack of places into area.

          Our two favourite places to go and play are the Arboretum - it's got an amazing playground but as it's on the top of a hill it's always a bit chilly so come prepared; and Play Up at Old Parliament House. My boys actually love to stop and look at everything at OPH before we actually get to the play space so it's a good half a day out for a couple of dollars entry.

          Unfortunately I'm on the southside and driving to Gungahlin feels like I'm driving interstate, so I can't tell you much about that area sorry! Best of luck with your new bub and your move.

            I live in this area and am part of a Facebook group called gungahlin mothers. They have regular catch ups around the area.

            There are lots of parks in and around gungahlin, it's an area with lots of young families and always something on to take young children to.

            I have an 18 month old ds if you'd like to meet someone in the area for a play date.

                    A lot of people are having trouble trying to get a house in Canberra this posting. A few mums from the girls school don't have one either. Hope something comes up fast!

                      There is nothing available.... They offered us a 2bed apartment for 2adults and 3kids. Plus it's so bloody expensive for rentals.

                        We haven't looked as we are not there yet. What is DHA?

                          Do u mean buying a house or renting?
                          and is it not enough houses or what was the issue of not being able to "get a house"?

                          Now, i am worried because we have only looked on the internet

                            DHA is defence housing which is housing for defence personnel that get shifted to various cities.

                            There are no defence houses in Canberra so we have to look at private rentals but that's way more expensive than a defence house.

                              Rentals here are so expensive! We have lots of defence families/members in our building. I'd say about 30%. We mostly have 2br apartments though. Some 3br on the top floor, but we don't have a lift. So it's 3 floors of stairs up to the top :/
                              Are you just looking in Gunghalin? I'm sure there are other members who can give you the low down on other Canbo suburbs if you need! How stressful! Don't you have a newborn?
