A suburban hub with a metropolitan buzz.
If you are after a change from the gentle shopping, café and restaurant scene of Kingston, The Kingston Foreshore boardwalk – with its vibrant restaurant and bar scene – is an easy 6-minute stroll (500m) north east. And the very stylish Manuka Shops adds cinemas and a larger range of retail and entertainment options to the area’s offerings, also within a short 13-minute (1km) walk from Atria.
Not only is this wider hub one of Canberra’s most popular spots for a bite to eat, a coffee or a special night out, it is also home to some of our most unique arts precincts. The Canberra Glassworks is Australia’s only cultural centre dedicated to contemporary glass art hosting a range of exhibitions, tours, and hands-on experiences. While the multi-award winning Bus Depot Markets is a Canberra Sunday tradition.
Enjoy a stroll or ride around Lake Burley Griffin; take in some of Canberra’s best sporting action at Manuka Oval; or enjoy a lap at the heritage listed Manuka Pool – and all this is within a 700 metre walk of Atria.
