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, be sure to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 446 646 Tuesday-Friday.
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 Dogonians page includes events and activities for our four-legged friends.
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.
