A Brief History
Until 1990, Casey was part of the former 'Gold Creek' a 3,940-acre (15.9 km2) rural property
with the Gold Creek Homestead at its centre. The relative flat and even topography of portions
of the suburb of Casey was ideal for various pursuits including horse racing, and was the site
of a practice track for racing horses. A stand of trees parallel to Horse Park Drive which
predates the establishment of the village (now the suburb) of Hall marks the original alignment
of the Queanbeyan-Yass Road.
Casey will eventually occupy an area approximately 192 ha in size and accommodate 1,940
dwellings, including about 275 medium density units in the commercial centres.
