Give the gift of Denman Prospect this Christmas.
Whether you already live in Denman Prospect or you’re moving in (or know someone who is) we’ve pulled together a last-minute Christmas gift guide inspired by life at Denman Prospect.
1. A beautiful aerial view for your lounge room wall.
Is it just us or is there something beautiful and inspiring about a map of Canberra?
How gorgeous, then, is this custom map of Denman Prospect from website Mapiful? That’s State Circle in the top left-hand corner and you can trace your way to suburb-level Denman Prospect, right down to Ada Norris Avenue and McMichael Terrace. The perfect gift for your lounge or dining room wall.
2. Accessories for a tiny tennis tournament
While most Canberrans have to struggle to get the fold-up table out of the garage for a game of ping pong, Denman Prospect residents are lucky enough to have their own purpose-built outdoor tables ready to go, 24/7.
The tables are located off Trinca Street, behind Denman Village Shops. Set up a tournament with mates on New Year’s Eve (we’re thinking Scared Hitless versus the Backhanded Compliments) or head down with the kids for a family competition on Christmas Day.
Either way, this ping pong set from Sunnylife is a great choice.
3. The perfect tool for stargazing
Did you know the lighting in Denman Prospect has been specially designed to reduce light pollution and therefore keep the night as ink black as possible?
Astronomer Brad Tucker, who works with 120 other staff at Mount Stromlo Observatory, says Denman Prospect residents have the best view of space in Canberra, with Venus visible in the early morning and some of the best views of the Milky Way in the world. With the help of a telescope, your child will even be able to see the rings of Saturn at certain times of year.
4. Shaken, not stirred, right here in Denman Prospect.
Chances are, if you’ve built your dream home at Denman Prospect you’ve got a fantastic bar setup in your alfresco area or inside your home (or both).
This Christmas and New Year’s Eve you can make your own Grasshopper cocktail (coloured Denman Prospect green) or Long Island Iced Tea in a shaker designed just for our suburb. It’s a great way to let your local and interstate guests know we pour the best drinks right here Denman Prospect. Cheers!
5. A Fitbit to get you stepping
If you live in Denman Prospect, chances are you live a healthy, active lifestyle and love being outdoors. With so many scenic walking trails around our suburb (check out our top 3 here) and fantastic recreational amenities at the base of Mount Stromlo, it’s easy to see why!
A Fitbit is a great gift idea for those who enjoy getting out and about.
6. Spot your house from above.
Treat your loved one to a bird’s eye view of Denman Prospect from a helicopter!
