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, or you can download a copy here. It's important to keep your details up to date with Samantha to receive invitations and advice on residents only events and opportunities.
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 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.

Christmas Photos 2020
You may have noticed the new Giant Chair installed in our huge 19-home Display Village. We think the chair makes for a fun Instagram-worthy photo op, so we’d like to invite the first 200 Googonian families to have a FREE professional photo in the chair.
We would provide you with a high-resolution copy of the photos - FREE of charge - in exchange for the opportunity to publish the images on our social and owned media for the purposes of celebrating the Christmas season in Googong (no names would be disclosed).
Brookvale residents only land release
No one knows the beauty of the Googong landscape like a Googonian. That’s why we wanted to extend to you the opportunity to purchase in a limited 12-lot release at Brookvale ahead of the public release from 9 November 2020. To assist you in this consideration, we also wanted to invite you to book a spot in our exclusive resident-only site visit to the viewing platform on the Nangi Pimble hilltop reserve, so you can take in the vista on offer, first hand.
These 12 lots are nestled below the Nangi Pimble hilltop reserve at one of the highest vantage points in Googong and enjoy commanding views across the township to the backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges. These 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 the 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 like this from multiple rooms in your new home.
Lots range from 733m2 to 1194m2 (average 922m2) and are priced from $395,000 to $462,000 (average $427,250).
