platform that rises above the town centre streets. All apartments enjoy full access to Sentinel’s
numerous facilities, including extensive undercover parking, a generous 25 metre resort-style pool, a

other places to unwind at the end of a long day with a leisurely drink while watching the shimmering
water. Belconnen city living offers a level of convenience few get to experience, with some of the

feature large corner balconies offering panoramic views of the Belconnen town centre and beyond.
