mumin07 is definitely right, it depends where you work on what rural area is best... i.e. if you work in Gungahlin or Belconnen then Yass would be great! If you work in Tuggeranong then Burra/Royalla/Googong/Bungendore would be great!
If it were me, I think I'd move to just outside of Yass. I LOVE Binalong, it's 30km from Yass. We are getting married there, tiny town, it's adorable, but I dont' think it would have the services a young family would need. But there are plently of little towns that are 10min from Yass (Bowning etc!)
Good luck, I am VERY jealous!
