Accessibility to public transports

  • Bus services

These bus lines run along the Canberra Route and are located near The Watergardens at Canberra.

In two directions, Bus 169 operates from the interchange between the Woodlands and the Ang Mo Kio, and vice versa. You can reach Yishun MRT stations, Mayflower Secondary School, and Ang Mo Kio Primary School when you can take Bus 169 from the stop immediately outside the Condominium. It’s straightforward to visit any area of Singapore with MRT a couple of feet away.

  • Train stations

As discussed, Watergardens at Canberra is nested in the Landed Enclave and can be accessed by Canberra MRT just 350m walk away. The Bishan Interchange are only five train stops away, and you can travel to the Circle Line and the Downtown Line and North-East lines. You are also three stations from Woodlands MRT station, where the long-awaited Thomson-East Coast Line is located. By 2024, it will be a breeze to travel from the North to the East of Singapore.


Bukit Canberra

In a beautiful naturalistic setting, the inhabitants of the Watergardens@Canberra may stroll 5 minutes towards Bukit Canberra and look forward to features like an Indoor Sports Hall, a hawk, and a multi-house facility, a Senior Care Centre, a green area for community farming and lifestyle amenities.

Bukit Canberra is shaped roughly around the prevailing terrain, highlights the hilly and lush greenery characteristics and is incorporated into the different infrastructures to improve existing greenery and biodiversity. This allows users to enjoy the features of the hub in a natural environment and bring it closer to plants and fauna.

The forest area surrounding the periphery of Bukit Canberra is maintained following existing vegetation at the site. It will gradually be planted to grow into a secondary tropical rainforest with abundant biodiversity and complement the nature trails of the adjacent National Parks. Running paths of differing difficulties cross various landscapes and provide a wide range of sensations. Fruit Orchard and Food Forest feature several fruit trees and food plants, and the community in the community gardens will cultivate its plants.

North-South Corridor

The North-South Corridor (NSC), the longest transit priority corridor in Singapore with dedicated bus roads, cycling trunk roads, and pedestrian walkways, will use Watergardens at Canberraresidents to support public bus transportation, movement operators, and pedestrians. It connects the northern region with the city center directly after the completion. The 21.5 km north-south corridor links the town, and the North is currently intended to finish by 2026.

The corridor will help relieve traffic on the CTE and essential routes, such as Marymount Road and Thomson.

Conceived to support our concept of the automobile, the corridor gives bus travelers a fantastic travel experience. Bus commuters are projected to save an average of 10 to 15 minutes of the trip with dedicated and continuous bus paths combined with priority signals.

The NSC, via bicycle trunk routes and footpaths, will also assist active mobile users and pedestrians. These connect the Park Connector network and local bicycle routes across the corridor of HDB cities, boosting the connection between users and pedestrians of active mobility.

The corridor will also reduce CTE and essential roads, such as Marymount Road and Thomson.

The corridor is designed to complement our car-lite strategy and offers bus riders a pleasant experience. The bus passengers are projected to save an average of 10 to 15 minutes of travel time on dedicated and continuous bus routes paired with priority signals.

NSC will also assist active mobile users and pedestrians via bike lane routes and pedestrian trails. These will connect with the Park Connector network and local bicycle routes along the whole corridor of HDB towns, therefore improving the connection for active people and pedestrians.

Education centers

Sembawang Shopping Centre has a variety of alternatives and, as it is so close to the Watergardens at Canberra, have a look at this list from:

  • D’Growing Hands
  • GlobalArt Sembawang
  • Heguru
  • Nanyang Educational Consultancy
  • Raiders Martial Arts Studio (coming soon!)
  • The Dance Station (coming soon!)
  • Xian Dai Education Centre (Chinese language)
  • Yamaha Music


Nature and leisure

If you do not wish to remain in Canberra Condo, you will access a few smaller neighborhood parks. The parks have a radius of 1.5 km:

  • Montreal Green
  • Jalan Sendudok Park 
  • Legundi Park 

The hotel is within a 20-minute walk to the Yishun Neighborhood Park or a 4-minute drive to the Sembawang Park for a broader greenery area. You may spend the children on the marine playground at Sembawang Park, feel the sand between feet, or have your friends and family at the barbeque.

Or take the Gambas Avenue, a 4-minute drive from Canberra Condo, to Sembawang Hot Spring Park. We have heard that parksmen at the hot spring often fried their eggs, so bring your buckets if you want to have a wonderful time! There’s also a local food on-site, Sembawang Eating House, to satisfy your empty tummies.

Transformation of the North Region

New facilities and housing developments for a wide range of living, work and play alternatives include the building of the Canberra MRT Station, the Canberra Plaza, the Buke Canberra and the Woodlands Health Campus.

Specific initiatives such as the Canberra MRT station and the Canberra Plaza have already been built. Some significant advancements can be expected in the following:

Woodlands Regional Center

It will incorporate new commercial and residential projects to be a lively new center for companies. It will also serve as a crucial link with Malaysia, including Woodlands Central and Woodlands North Coast.

Also proposed was a new city center close to Woodlands MRT station that would allow people to participate in community activities to have a convenient, lively public area.


A new 1.9km neighborhood connects Woodlands Central to the Woodlands Waterfront via cycling and pedestrian roads.

Park Marsiling

The old Woodlands Town Garden has been reopened after 22 months of renovation in 2018. A ribbon play area (a distinguishing feature that tweaks the landscape and doubles up as resting areas), a playground (the only one of its kind in Singapore), musical play equipment and 3G fitness equipment. You can also enjoy a food and drink outlet, open all clock long, including new activity areas and amenities.

In addition, the mangrove region was improved with sensitivity so that tourists may get near to nature while enabling wildlife to flourish.

Woodlands Health Campus

A new acute care hospital, a community hospital and a nursing home are to be established in the phases from 2022. This means that inhabitants of the North are offered superior medical treatment.

Nexus Community Is a new community hub next to the Admiralty MRT station, which incorporates medical and nursery services and elderly residences and residences.

The Social Corridor The 4.2 km of the North-South MRT line connectors, with exuberant vegetation, community gardens, 3-style amenities, pavilions and resting areas.


The Watergardens at Canberra will profit from the exciting changes in the Northern Region by using the URA Master Plan to bring jobs closer to home.

A change to the notion of ‘live-work play’ has allowed many people to enjoy living near working places, facilities and leisure areas commencing with the growth of regional centers like Tampines and Jura during the 1990s.

It is no surprise, given the fact that the north section of Singapore is growing into one of the most significant integrated communities with residential sites, commercial structures, retail malls, business centers, natural parks and entertainment facilities.

The number of private homes, HDB flats, Executive Condominiums (ECs), and landed houses has increased constantly. Over the years. Some purchasers may be attracted to the greenery, peace and character of the North, while others are attracted to the more economical pricing of properties. But there are always those who find Sembawang ‘ulu’ simultaneously and want to live closer to the town.

Nevertheless, let’s consider the future investment possibilities of the Canberra condo’s Watergardens. The results are compared between district 17 (Flora, Loyang & Changi), district 18 (Simei, Tampines & Pasir Ris) and district 19 (Hougang, Punggol & Sengkang) and district 27 (Simei, Tampines & Pasir Ris) in various Outer Core regions (Sembawang & Yishun).

Over the past ten years, the following charts are based on 99-year rental properties (new, sub-sales and resale). The region’s performance (price appreciation %) are the following:

  • District 17 (Flora, Loyang & Changi) – 52%
  • District 18 (Simei, Tampines & Pasir Ris – 37%
  • District 19 (Hougang, Punggol & Sengkang) – 48%
  • District 27 (Sembawang & Yishun) – 23%

As can be seen, the rest has been outperformed by District 27 (Sembawang & Yishun). This is hardly surprising, considering the progress of the other regions. During early 1990s, the government of Singapore decided to decentralize some of its economic actions out from the central region. Tampines is, for instance, the first regional facility to be created. In the East, there are also significant wafer factories, aviation industries and Changi Business Park, where the population of the neighboring housing estates may find a substantial job.

But will house prices catch up with the development of the north region and give the first-mover benefit to property investors? And given the comparatively low-income price, is there a possibility of a more significant appreciation of capital?


The latest transacted price of the launch in 2012, at an average price of $844 ft, was almost $1 011 ft (a 19.8 percent gain).

Eight Courtyards

The last price transacted was about $1,008 psf, launched in 2011 at an average price of $795 psf (a 26.8 percent gain). The private condominiums were instead a good functioning in the region, as can be observed. There are, therefore, absolutely no reasons why The Watergardens At Canberra would not do well, particularly as the North region is undergoing exciting development.
