Introducing Googong

Location


Destination: Googong

Googong township is situated on a 780 hectare site just 16km south-east of Parliament House in Canberra, and less than 6km south-east of Jerrabomberra.

Suprisingly, you don't have to travel far for a town with this much natural beauty right on your doorstep. In fact, Googong is just a 25 minute drive from the centre of Canberra! When you compare that to the drive to Canberra's city centre from Gungahlin (20 minutes) or Tuggeranong (25 minutes),it's clear that Googong's much closer than you thought [Source: Google Maps]

Access to Canberra is via Jerrabomberra on the extended Edwin Land Parkway. The new road linkages, improvements to access along Old Cooma Road and proximity to Canberra and Queanbeyan, mean that Googong is well placed to support future forecast growth for the region.

The picturesque site was originally grazing land and is characterised by gently undulating slopes and plains, and dominated by the dramatic mountain backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges.
