The Gungahlin Region Online!
Gungahlin's Premier Community and Business Website
The word 'Gungahlin' means 'little rocky hill'.
The Gungahlin Region is located in the northern part of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT),
and is approximately 15km from the Central Business District (CBD) of Canberra, and 10km
from the closest "satellite" city - Belconnen.
Gungahlin is 290km from Sydney, 655 km from Melbourne and 3,953km from Perth, and is
centrally located to all regional attractions, and is within a comfortable two hours drive of
Australia's snow fields, famous trout fishing lakes and the pristine beaches of the New South
Wales south coast.
In 1991, the population of the region was a mere 389. Today, little more than 20 years later,
Gungahlin boasts a cosmopolitan population of almost 50,000.
Amaroo, Ngunnawal, Nicholls, Palmerston, Harrison, Forde, Crace, Gold Creek Village,
Mitchell, Hall and the newest suburbs of Casey and Bonner make up the Gungahlin Region,
and this web site will help locals and visitors alike to find information on local services, coming
events and local businesses.
Gungahlin is a fantastic place to live, work and play, with an abundance of fresh air and a
temperate climate (ok, it can get be cold in winter with many frosts and the occasional
snowfall), but with a July average temperature range of 1°C to 12°C it is rarely uncomfortably
cold. Summers are pleasant, with low humidity and an average January temperature range of
13°C to 28°C. The average annual rainfall is just over 600mm.
