Oaks Estate is one of three ACT villages (with Hall and Tharwa) and was originally founded in 1836 as The Oaks homestead, which is still standing. Oaks Estate is located within the ACT near the Queanbeyan train station, with strong historical links to both Queanbeyan and Canberra.
The Oaks Estate Progress Association (OEPA) is Canberra's oldest resident group, and was formed in March 1926 to fight for municipal services for the community - notably sewage, plumbed water and buses.
The OEPA meets regularly at the community hall and residents and other interested parties are welcome to attend. See the meeting page for the schedule. The OEPA has lots of opportunities for volunteers to assist in building the community spirit.
