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.

 

Welcome Book

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 community@googong.net or phone 1300 446 646 Tuesday-Friday. Your welcome pack will include a printed copy of our Welcome Book. It's important to keep your details up to date with Samantha to receive invitations and advice on residents only events and opportunities. We encourage you to whitelist community@googong.net and enquiries@googong.net to make sure your system doesn't block the emails. 

Facebook

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 and the Cats of Googong 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 Bubsoffer 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 Numbers

Lot Plan numbers – including corresponding DP Plan numbers, and street name and numbers.

Street, Parks and Playground Names

We have compiled a book of street, parks and playground names and their historical references in a publication. You can grab a printed copy from our community manager at the Googong Sales Centre, or download a copy here

Googong Entry Sculpture Lighting Program

We have decorated the entry sculpture, Terraformis, to celebrate special events and community milestones. In addition to decorating the concrete letters with temporary vinyl overlays to celebrate NAIDOC Week 2023 (2-9 July 2023) with the theme ‘For our Elders’, we previously installed a rainbow for World Pride (17 February 2023 – 5 March 2023) along the theme of ‘Belong’. You may have also noticed that at other times of the year we project coloured lights onto the Googong letters to commemorate events such as these.


Draft Structure Plan of the Googong Town Centre

The Googong Team have been working on concept designs for the Googong Town Centre and have submitted a draft Structure Plan for the Googong Town Centre to Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC) for their consideration and approval.

Once QPRC are satisfied with the draft Structure Plan they will publicly exhibit the Structure Plan for comment by the community. In the coming months we will also be submitting a DA for Stage 1 of the Town Centre and this too will be publicly exhibited for comment.

 

In advance of this process Googong Project Director, Malcolm Leslie, presented the plans for Googong Town Centre to the residents of Googong at a webinar on the evening of Wednesday 10/8/22.

Thank you to those of you who joined us on Wednesday evening and for sharing your questions. We hope you found it informative and look forward to hosting more events like this in the future.
