Googong is an exciting new development in rural New South Wales near Queanbeyan. The town will eventually have 5,550 homes over several master-planned neighbourhoods. Construction of the first houses has already begun and will continue for the next ten years. If you are interested in purchasing a block in Googong, make sure you’ve had a look at the strict design guidelines for the town. The design guidelines are crucial for establishing a neighborhood character at Googong. Your designer needs to be abreast of these guidelines so that they can design a house that will comply. Only complying designs will be pre-approved for DA Submission by the Design Coordinator.

We have created a pinboard to help set out these design guidelines graphically. Essentially, this is an ideas board for architectural precedents based on the official Design Guidelines document. Click the image below to open the pinboard. Have a read of the descriptions on each image for more information about the design ideas. Some of the images are taken from the Design Guide document put out by, but most of it are images from around Pinterest that will illustrate the concepts behind the design guidelines document in a clearer way.
