Posted 2 Dec 2016

Story by CBR Canberra

Canberra is the world’s most liveable city, so it’s no surprise that we are also a growing city. Two of the newest additions to the Canberra region are the Ginninderry community and Denman Prospect. Both new additions celebrate everything we love about living in Canberra; the beautiful natural surroundings, lifestyle and community.


The Ginninderry community will extend across the ACT/NSW border to the scenic area west of Belconnen. Eventually, the Ginninderry community hopes to be home to four suburbs and a total of 11,500 homes by 2055. The names of Ginninderry communities’ first two suburbs, Strathnairn and Macnamara were announced earlier this year.

Located alongside the Murrumbidgee River Conservation Corridor the Ginninderry community is designed to fit within a growing city of Canberra. With homes designed for the modern family, Ginninderry community will also contain compact designs for smaller and lower maintenance households.

The Ginninderry community also boasts a six-star – green star community rating for sustainability.

Denman Prospect
Located in the Molonglo Valley, Denman Prospect is just minutes from the city and Canberra’s major centres and promises sweeping views of the Molonglo Valley corridor, the Arboretum, the lake and city beyond.

Named after Lord and Lady Denman who were prominent in the early development of Canberra, Denman Prospect will have innovative sustainable schemes, excellent community facilities and generous streetscapes.

Denman Prospect is also the first entire suburb in Australia to commit to the Homes for Homes initiative, which was developed by the Big Issue and aims to provide affordable housing for disadvantaged Australians.
