Gungahlin is the name for the entire district, and also the town centre, but it is also the name of the suburb which Gungahlin Town Centre is in.

Gungahlin is next to the suburbs of Ngunnawal, Palmerston, Franklin, Harrison, Throsby, Forde and Amaroo. Burgmann Anglican School is located in the suburb. The edges of the suburb are on Horse Park Drive, Gundaroo Drive and Gungahlin Drive.

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 Hibberson and Gozzard Streets.
