Ginninderry

Sustainability

Since work first began in 2009, Ginninderry has been planned as a sustainable community. Together with new residents of Ginninderry we will work to create a community that showcases the world’s best practice in nature conservation, urban design, construction and long-term liveability. Our aim is for Ginninderry to be an exemplar project, both nationally and internationally, with its community proud of its place in the capital region.

Ginninderry Heritage

Ginninderry is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning “throwing out little rays of light” or simply “sparkling”. It’s a very appropriate name for a community that will be bounded by the Murrumbidgee River and Ginninderra Creek.

Arts Precinct

Strathnairn Arts is a not-for-profit arts association supported by the ACT Government and has been involved in the Ginninderry master planning process since 2013. Located right next door to the first stage of Ginninderry, the property was originally part of a land grant awarded to 19th century explorer Charles Sturt.

Ginninderry is part of a wider community, in West Belconnen and the Canberra region generally. We want to contribute to that community, helping people become more prosperous and more socially connected and providing opportunities to learn new skills.
