Some helpful links for new Googonians
There’s a lot involved with moving and setting up a new home, including familiarising yourself with your new neighbourhood, getting services connected, and much more. So we’ve taken the liberty of compiling some useful information that might make your move to Googong just that little bit easier.
If you haven’t already met our community manager Samantha Remmers and received your welcome pack (including Googong Picnic Hamper), be sure to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 446 646 Tuesday-Friday. Your welcome pack will include a printed copy of our Welcome Book. It's important to keep your details up to date with Samantha to receive invitations and advice on residents only events and opportunities. We encourage you to whitelist email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure your system doesn't block the emails.
There are some great Facebook pages that are worth joining to keep abreast of events and local information:
Googong Township page provides updates on the town’s progress from the developer, as well as advice on events and activities of interest to residents and the region.
The Googong Residents Association page is the official residents’ representative group for the township.
The Googong Playgroup meets weekly and offers many different activities for children. It's a great way to connect with other Googonian families and offer social connections for children and their families.
The Googong Notice Board includes community events; while Googong Mumma’s Exercise Group, Googong Mums and Bubs, offer opportunities for our Googonian parents. The Googong Community Garden keeps the green thumbs in the community active, and Googong Buy Swap Sell is a must for the bargain hunter or tidy-up-erer.
Lot Plan numbers – including corresponding DP Plan numbers, and street name and numbers.

Vista Land Release
No one knows the beauty of the Googong landscape like a Googonian. That's why we wanted to extend the first opportunity to purchase in this limited release at Vista, to our fellow Googonians (in advance of the public release in June 2021). To assist you in this consideration, we invite you to book a spot in our exclusive resident-only site visit to Vista on Nangi-Pimble hilltop reserve so you can take in the expansive view, first hand.
Vista is nestled into the Nangi-Pimble hilltop reserve at one of the highest vantage points in Googong and extends commanding views across the township to the backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges. Most lots are unashamedly large and steep, which means you can achieve your dreams of a custom-built home with an elevated outlook to this stunning horizon, without fear of it being built out. Imagine how a split-level design can provide for sophisticated outdoor entertaining areas, soaring internal spaces, and breathtaking views from multiple rooms in your new home.
Lots range from 480m2 to 1,140m2 (average 762m2) and are priced from $375,000-$496,000 (average $421,192).
