We're moving to Canberra mid next year and I'm trying to work out where to live!

Our number one priority is a great public primary school. We will only be there for about 2 years, so we will be renting and we would like to spend less than $500 per week, even if that means an older house or maybe a townhouse.

We would also love somewhere that has lots of parks/playgrounds etc for the kids.

So far I have found Aranda and Garran. Possibly Kaleen as well as I'm not too worried about being further out.

Does anyone have any comments about those suburbs and schools, or other ones I should be looking at.
