Gungahlin's Premier Community and Business Website
Several colonial buildings are scattered throughout Gold Creek Village, and as you wonder
through the streets it's easy to imagine you are in a small country town, rather than just 15
minutes from the Canberra CBD.
Gold Creek Village also houses one of the oldest buildings in Canberra but, interestingly, it
has only been in the Village for the past 35 years! How come? The building (a slab hut) was
built in 1860 in the NSW town of Bookham (approx 130km from Canberra). It was later
transported to its current location in the Village back in 1970. The old hut oozes rustic charm
and now houses a famous local landmark restaurant.
Come and visit Gold Creek Village today. Take a leisurely stroll through the array of specialty
shops and galleries, stop for a cold beer at one of the taverns or relax with a coffee and cake
at one of the eateries.

Relaxing at Gold Creek Village
A visit to Gold Creek Village is like a step back in time. The Village is
located in the Gungahlin Region, on the site of the historic Ginninderra
Village, which dates back to 1883 - long before Canberra was a twinkle
in Walter Burley Griffins eye.
The historic Ginninderra School House and Masters Residence (located
in the Village) was constructed in 1883 and operated as the public
school from 1884 to 1910. The building was used for the next 60 years
as a residence for the school masters from Hall and as a post office.
The Ginninderra Village and school house was privately purchased in
December 1982 and a program of restoration and re-developments of
the grounds and public buildings undertaken.
