Throsby – The place to be

HerCanberra Team

With the light rail soon to be a prominent feature in Gungahlin and Canberra being named the World’s most liveable city; it’s clear that Throsby is perfectly poised to become one of Canberra most sought-after suburbs.

There are a multitude of reasons why you would want to live in Throsby and why you would want to start building your ideal home in Gungahlin’s newest premier community. But we’ve managed to narrow it down to six of the most convincing.


Located along Horse Park Drive and adjacent to Harrison, Throsby is only 3kms from the Federal Highway, so even if you’re not jumping on board a tram, it’s only going to take you 15 minutes to get to the city. Plus, let’s not forget Gungahlin Town Centre is on your doorstep when you want to tap into the diverse range of local restaurants, boutiques and leisure facilities – which can all be reached in less than five minutes.


Natural Surroundings

If it’s nature and some peace and quiet that you’re searching for, this pocket of Gungahlin is surrounded by the pristine nature reserves of Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Reserve, offering uninterrupted views to Black Mountain and the Brindabella Ranges.

Throsby is a suburb where you can leave the hustle and bustle behind and truly set your own pace. It’s perfect if you enjoy those early morning jogs, afternoon hikes or bike riding on the weekends with a network of pedestrian and cycle paths being developed to keep you connected to the nearby nature trails.  And what’s more, with a beautiful landscape right at your doorstep it’s your little pocket of paradise.

Diverse Housing Options

This is where the creation of your dream home actually begins.  Block sizes in Throsby average over 460m² (which is large by today’s standards) and make it easy to set up a game of backyard cricket, gather the family around for a BBQ or simply sit outside and enjoy the views. Offering a choice of block types means that whatever life stage you’re at, you can create the perfect home for you.


Getting Around

We’ve already mentioned the convenient network of pathways that will make it effortless to navigate around the community and into the nature reserves. But, there will also be bus routes with a number of bus stops throughout the suburb – all no more than 400 metres from every home making it easy to commute into the city and to local town centres.  You’ll be where you want to get to in no time.

Six-Star Energy Rating

Minimising your energy consumption is always a bonus – not only for your hip pocket, but also for the planet – and as Throsby is a 6 Star Energy Rated suburb, you’ll do both while enjoying the comforts of your new home. Throsby will also utilise Water Sensitive Urban Design to ensure there is minimal impact on the surrounding ecosystem.



Nestled between two nature reserves, Throsby is its own precinct set for a superb community lifestyle. With large open spaces and parks throughout, it makes it easy to have community get-togethers with friends and neighbours. But once the first Throsbonians move in, an exciting community program will be available to all residents.

The Mingle program is an inclusive initiative that aims to build vibrant communities through a range of activities such as new resident programs, family events, community working groups and much more.
If you’re considering your next move, Throsby will not disappoint.
