Molonglo Valley embraces the natural environment. Featuring magnificent views to surrounding mountains and valleys, wide tree-lined streets, recreational parks and cycle paths, it is overflowing with a range of residential options, schools, local shops and community facilities. Residents have easy access to some of Canberra’s premier natural outdoor playgrounds, including the Molonglo River, the National Arboretum, the National Zoo and Aquarium and Stromlo Forest Park – renowned for its world-class mountain biking trails.
Mt Stromlo Park not only hosts an amazing array of cycling facilities (including BMX and mountain bike trails), it also has the Rob De Castella running track, with scenic views of Canberra. For the star gazers and science buffs out there, Mount Stromlo has a world class observatory and visitor centre well worth a visit.
As the region grows, there will be much to watch. Living in Molonglo Valley offers the excitement and opportunity of a pioneer community. On top of that, residents are in close proximity not only to outstanding natural facilities for recreation and relaxation but also Canberra’s major centres for work, dining and retail therapy.
The Environmental Conscience: careful planning and high standards in energy efficiency, water conservation, solar access and ecological sustainability mean Molonglo Valley dwellers are proud to have the lowest impact on the environment.
Newly opened Charles Weston School caters for preschool to year 6 students.
It also provides the first community facilities for residents of Molonglo Valley, including community meeting rooms, storage areas and oval along with a school hall and sports court.
