Close to city life but rooted in nature, Ginninderry is a unique location.

The area begins near north-western suburbs Holt and Macgregor, stretching across the ACT/NSW border to part of the Yass Valley with the Murrumbidgee River on one side and Ginninderra Creek on the other.

If you are considering moving to a newer suburb, Ginninderry is a great option. From its forward-thinking approach to the rich history of living on heritage land and closeness to the heart of Canberra, we’ve broken down just what makes Ginninderry such a great place to live.

Proximity to Belconnen

Living in Ginninderry puts you only 2km from Kippax Group Centre, with a library, supermarket, post office, pharmacy, news agency, and food outlets at your fingertips.

The bustle of Belconnen Town Centre and Canberra City are under 20 minutes away, and good local schools and universities are right down the road.

Training & Employment

When you buy at Ginninderry, you can be sure you are contributing to the welfare of many disadvantaged Canberrans. The Ginninderry-based SPARK initiative aims to help people become more prosperous and socially connected.

SPARK involves three key elements: a social inclusion clause written into all Ginninderry contracts for capital works and commercial land sales; partnership with NGOs and Registered Training Organisations to providing disadvantaged youth with training, apprenticeships, and employment; and live training sites to provide hands-on experience.

Arts Precinct

Imagine being able to walk to your local arts centre on the weekend. Strathnairn Arts is a not-for-profit association housed in a property dating back to the 19th century.

The centre supports local artists working in a variety of mediums and includes a café, gallery, and work spaces for artists and community groups.

Sustainability & Liveability

Ginninderry has been designed to promote healthy and active living. The street network has been built to ensure pedestrians are the priority, with well-lit walking and cycling paths and a 3m wide two-way commuter cycle path up the main boulevard.

The land is rich in Aboriginal and European history, as a future heritage precinct. Education programs are being planned to connect Aboriginal knowledge-holders with the local community and ensure history is shard in a culturally appropriate manner.

Residents will have access to several community gardens. The community has also achieved a 6-star green rating, the highest rating available under the Green Building Council of Australia’s national Green Star.

Future Plans

The master plan for Ginninderry stretches years into the future, not just up until most houses are built. It is planned to be a series of villages connected by tree-lined avenues, public transport, and local facilities. The community has been designed to accommodate a growing population, so that new schools, shops, childcare and medical centres will be built as needed in years to come.

A lifestyle for everyone

Ginninderry will eventually consist of four suburbs to suit different budgets and lifestyles, making it accessible to everyone.

The Market Centre is planned as the social and economic hub with a town square, multi-functional spaces, and high-rise buildings. Urban Village will mix apartments, mews and terraces with cafes, parks, and playgrounds.

Village Link will be lower density than Urban Village, with townhouses, houses, parks, and playgrounds. Parkview Terraces is a new development being built by Achieve Homes which places you on the doorstep to nature with environmentally-friendly inclusions and premium appliances. Enjoy north-facing views in a 2- or 3-bedroom freestanding home, perfect if you are looking for your first home, an investment property, or downsizing.

Traditional areas will be characterised by larger blocks and homes, and Conservation Edge areas will transition between the higher density spots and the river corridor. In the right area to suit your lifestyle, Achieve Homes can build your dream home with an array of value-for-money House and Land Packages options.
