With two-thirds of our global populace predicted to be living in a city by 2050, finding affordable housing proves difficult when searching for property in Australia's cities, especially for first home buyers.

The Parade, a luxury residence right next to Canberra’s iconic Anzac Parade, offers two-bedroom apartments from $540,000. Offering inside-outdoor living, expansive living and spacious balconies, this apartment displays the best Campbell has to offer.
