There’s plenty to love about Mawson. The well-established suburb is very close to the shops, eateries and transport hub of Woden Town Centre, plus good schools and parks. But you don’t even need to leave the suburb. It has its very own local shops with a supermarket, newsagent, gym, and a handful of eateries, or you can have a bistro meal and a beer at The Mawson Club. The area has a good blend of houses, townhouses and apartments, with some homes in close to original 1960s and 1970s condition.
