Generous blocks and family homes nestled in a beautiful, culturally significant valley
Surrounded by the picturesque Brindabella Mountain range, the valley of Tuggeranong has a historic settlement past and is considered by many residents to be pleasantly distanced from the hustle and bustle of the city. The district was developed from the mid-70’s and offers a spacious urban environment in virtually every suburb, with over 90% of blocks being separate houses. This includes a mix of older houses, renovated houses and knock-down rebuilds. There is potential for urban renewal, with larger blocks have also been subdivided, providing smaller sites and compact housing options.
Suburbs in Tuggeranong include: Banks, Bonython, Calwell, Chisholm, Conder, Fadden, Gilmore, Gordon, Gowrie, Greenway, Isabella Plains, Kambah, Macarthur, Monash, Oxley, Richardson, Theodore and Wanniassa

Tuggeranong is blessed with a lower housing density than much of Canberra and it’s only a ten-minute drive from anywhere to fantastic hiking, fishing and horseriding spots. Locals are proud of its natural beauty and unassuming community spirit.
If you enjoy eating out often, you’ll find plenty of options on Anketell Street or the Hyperdome. There are any number of lovely restaurants or sports clubs to choose from.
The town centre has a large shopping complex, cinema, government departments, local businesses and a vibrant dining precinct that will be greatly enhanced thanks to a new lakeside development, Southquay. Southquay promises to transform the town centre into a lively waterfront community made up of apartments, restaurants, businesses, parks and a lakefront boulevard, to complement the existing range of apartments, homes and facilities in the area.
