the land

Sunset Googong is a new and exciting opportunity for classic, upmarket family living without city restrictions. As a subdivision in the suburb of Googong, the land on offer is nothing short of unique. Sunset has been held by a local family for nearly 45 years as grounds for sheep and cattle grazing. A creek lies directly below the site and open grazing land borders the property. An old stone chimney lingers as the lone survivor of a cottage destroyed in a bushfire in the mid 1980’s. Today, Sunset Googong is a place full of open space, freedom, and opportunity for your next family home, and the stone chimney remains a communal area accessed by all blocks in the heart of the land.

the lots

In Stage 1, we released 36 residential sites, all being 1000 sqm in size. These blocks are the very best in the Greater Queanbeyan Region, largely due to the superior size to that of nearby sites. Stage 2 DA is currently being designed and discussed with QPRC.

the life

Sunset Googong is close to all the amenities of Googong living, yet far enough removed for a little slice of freedom and privacy. Our earth and it’s environment is important to us. The area of Googong celebrates sustainable living factors and employs an eco friendly water usage system. We want to continue to reduce this carbon footprint and achieve the best solar orientation to maximise energy sustainability at Sunset.

googong lets you have your country lifestyle without giving up the things you love about the city.

a bit about googong

Googong sits within the Greater Queanbeyan Region, near the Googong Dam on Old Cooma Road in New South Wales. The small township is situated on a 780 hectare site just 25 minutes drive from the centre of Canberra.

There are five Indigenous groups that have identified a connection to the area, which also has a long history of European farming and settlement. Googong is named after one of the largest farming properties in the area and is characterised by gentle slopes and plains, with a dramatic mountain backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges. The area around Googong Township has a number of historic features including the old London Bridge Homestead and the London Bridge Arch, a natural limestone bridge formed by Burra Creek over thousands of years.

Googong has been designed around an integrated water cycle system, launched in 2013. This includes a dedicated water recycling plant which has been calculated to reduce potable water consumption by around 60%. It will recycle up to 62% of waste water for non-potable use including gardens, toilet flushing and irrigation of parks and public areas.

Construction has been approved for community facilities including a community centre, library, indoor sports and aquatic centre, sporting fields and a neighbourhood clubhouse, complete with swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym and meeting rooms.
