Whatever service you require from optometry to financial, education to healthcare; the Hilltops Region is home to professional services to rival much larger centres.
Young is in the heart of the Hilltops Region, less than two hour’s drive from Canberra. The town offers the amenities of an urban centre, award-winning coffee, scrumptious eateries near formal parks and lakes along the creek. Leave shopping malls behind and step into the sunlight of Young’s vibrant centre, with exclusive boutiques, hair and beauty salons, three supermarkets, top-level gourmet butchers, and great homewares and DIY shopping. Harden’s vibrant town centre, north of the Highway around Neill Street, is the commercial precinct of the twin towns. The newly landscaped main street has dramatic groups of mature date palms, and shade trees framing attractive Federation era and Federation Style shops, hotels, banks and a Mechanics’ Institute. The Railway Station, still in use but not manned, is a reminder of the scale of passenger and goods traffic that built the town. Boorowa has a colourful Irish heritage, wide open landscapes on the Boorowa River, a long tradition of pastoral activity, a vibrant township and pure country charm, it is an early Australian country town located just seventy minutes north-west of Canberra.
