Our Environmental Responsibility

Googong's Bright, Green Future


Googonians are fortunate to live surrounded by the natural environment and on the doorstep of the spectacular Googong Foreshores. To protect our precious environment, we have implemented numerous measures to prevent impacts upon Googong Dam and the water supply, as well as upon local plants, animals and ecological communities. We aim to provide residents with the opportunity to learn about and explore Googong's unique natural surroundings as well as to educate all Googonians as custodians of this local environment. We have ensured that Googonians have ample green space within Googong itself, with over 23% of Googong's area dedicated to open spaces and landscaping.
