A brief history
During colonial times and up until the late 1960s, present-day Gungahlin was part of the former
farmlands of Ginninderra. Ginninderra Village and later still the village of Hall serviced the
needs of the local farming community.
Free settlers included farming families such as the Rolfe, Shumack, Gillespie and Gribble
families. These settlers established wheat and sheep properties such as 'Weetangara', 'Gold
Creek','The Valley', 'Horse Park' and 'Tea Gardens'. Much of the local produce supplied the
large workforce at goldfields located at Braidwood and Major's Creek.
Gungahlin Town Centre
The commercial heart of the Gungahin Town Centre is Hibberson St, the centre's main street,
though the boundary of commercial activities in Anthony Rolfe Avenue, Gundaroo Drive and
Gozzard Street. There are currently four retail anchor stores in the town centre, namely Coles,
Woolworths, Aldi and Big W which are located in separate developments in Hibberson Street.
The only licensed club in the Town Centre is the Raiders Club located at the intersection of
