Canberra - Post Report Question and Answers

What kinds of gyms or other sports/workout facilities are available? Are they expensive?

We used Fitness First which was only about a 10 min walk from our house (one of the best things about Canberra is every neighborhood has its own "shops" - small IGA, usually a coffee shop (or two), pharmacy, often gym and hairdresser as well as a post office). I didn't find it expensive compared to DC or CLT - I think it was around $40 US/month. - Aug 2020
