The Ginninderry vision

Ginninderry will be an innovative, sustainable community of international significance in the Capital region.

First suburb of Strathnairn

After more than ten years of planning and consultation with local people, Ginninderry is taking shape as a community that respects its environment and its heritage. As a result, this will be a truly inspiring place to live.

Eventually, this masterplanned community will consist of four suburbs - three in the ACT and one in NSW (subject to rezoning approval).
Strathnairn is the first of these suburbs in Ginninderry and features of this neighbourhood include:

- a grand entry boulevard with wide verges, a segregated safe cycle-only path, shared paths for pedestrians and slower cyclists, trees and hedges, and room for future traffic growth.

- impressive detached homes along the entry boulevard, with rear car access

- The Link community hub focussed on this centre, with a future cafe and general store, plus proposed community, sporting, cultural and recreational facilities

- a green link, activated and supported by higher density attached homes along a linear park with community garden quiet spaces and play spaces

- a mix of home types catering to a variety of lifestyles and life stages

- a unique blend of open spaces and parks, retaining mature trees and promoting biodiversity

- links to the Murrumbidgee River corridor and riverside recreation areas.

A home to suit you

Our housing needs are changing, with fewer family households and more one and two-person households. Ginninderry will have a wide range of home types to suit every household type.

Flexi-living series
Innovative architect-designed terraces and other compact homes:

Traditional detached homes
Houses on compact blocks and one and two-storey homes on larger blocks

Streetscape homes
Detached family homes with rear lane access for garages.

Streetscape Plus house and land packages
These blocks introduce versatile freestanding housing on mid-sized blocks and present the opportunity to build a self-contained dwelling above the garage, essentially giving buyers tow homes on one block.

Sustainability in action

Ginninderry's sales and information centre, The Link in is an example of our commitment to sustainability. Not all these features are visible, but they're all contributing to making this what we call a high-performance building.

Energy generation

A large solar cell on the roof lets the building generate its own power. Pick up the iPad and you can see how the system is performing in real time.


The building has a high recycled content with some individual items being 100 per cent reclaimed or recycled.

Heating/ Cooling

The building has been designed to predominately rely on passive systems with mechanical heating and cooling systems only needed in extreme circumstances.


A large water tank system collects all the rainwater from the roof to use in our toilets and to help irrigate the gardens.


Landscapes around the building have been designed to reduce water use and to be drought tolerant - meaning they can bemaintained in our changing climate.

An affordable lifestyle

Affordability isn't just about house and land prices. It's also about ongoing cost savings that come from smart use of resources. At Ginninderry we have made this kind of affordability and sustainability part of our planning.

Re-imagining energy
We're providing incentives for those who use less energy and creating easy pathways to help install renewable energy and create a smarter electricity grid by:

providing incentives for installing high efficiency appliances

installing demand-management systems for households

making solar panels mandatory for households

looking at ways to network household solar

investigating cost effective battery storage options.

Water use
Ginninderry has been designed using best practice Water Sensitive Urban Design philosophies to ensure that the future development does not adversely impact our river systems. Some features of our Water Sensitive Urban Design include:

swales, wetlands and basins to capture, cleanse and recycle water on site

maximising the use of stormwater for irrigation

increasing water tank requirements for some blocks to provide more water for toilet flushing, laundry and irrigation purposes.

Sustainable transport options
We have been exploring ways to connect our Ginninderry residents with the broader public transport network at West Belconnen.

Every household will be in easy walking distance from a bus stop

A connected network of pedestrian and cycling paths will provide access ways throughout Ginninderry and into broader West Belconnen.

We will organise education and working bees for the community as it is established.
