Postcodes: Wanniassa, 2903

Situated in Canberra's south, Wanniassa is one of Canberra's gems. Bordering the suburbs of Kambah, Greenway and Monash, with easy access to the Parkway it is ideally located.

Nature is abundant and 70s-style homes are nestled on well-sized blocks. The suburb is named after Wanayasa in West Java, Indonesia, and keeping with ACT tradition, each of the streets share the namesake with politicians.

Wanniassa's main hub of Erindale is one of the south side's most bustling areas. The Erindale Centre is a designated group centre that is home to an array of restaurants and shops.

EAT

Erindale Vikings is undergoing a refurbishment with an emphasis on refreshing the interior to establish a more modern and up-to-date facade. Along with this it is opening a number of new restaurants, including The Cookery, which opened back in October.

The Cookery is your typical club meal with a sophisticated twist, the menu even recommends beer matches. The Wagyu beef burger is mouth-wateringly good.

Joe's Thai is one of Canberra's best Thai restaurants. Its speciality, Thai snapper with your choice of topping, is definitely best shared, alongside the stuffed eggplant and crispy prawns with five spices.

The cupcakes and pies are highly regarded. Located in Erindale Shopping Centre next to Woolworths, it's a great place to satisfy your sweet tooth.
