Coombs – A Convenient and Active Community

Welcome to Molonglo Valley, Canberra’s newest and growing region, nestled conveniently between Weston Creek and Belconnen and just a 15-minute drive or bus trip to Canberra’s CBD.

Coombs was the first suburb to be released in Molonglo Valley. The Molonglo River Corridor balances the hustle and bustle of everyday life with a distinguishing presence in Coombs enhancing the suburb’s natural beauty. This community can enjoy the best of both worlds - a tranquil place to live with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, and easy connection to facilities that support a thriving community.

With a growing community of more than 1,800 (source: ABS, 2016), there’s already so much to enjoy here and even more to look forward to, with future land releases proposed in the northern parts of this community.

Be part of your community.

Local Facilities at Your Doorstep

It’s all about a convenient lifestyle in Wright where the local amenities are a stone’s throw from home and the community in Wright enjoys this convenience first hand! The suburb is an outdoor playground with well-considered open space areas, parks for a variety of ages and an extensive cycle path network which links to wider Canberra.

Development is continuing on the local shops in the nearby suburb of Coombs and children already have access to childcare centres and the P-6 Charles Weston School in Coombs. These choices are set to expand from 2020 with the construction of two new schools, both will be within walking distance to the newest community in Wright.

Venture just a five minute drive away to experience Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra’s world-class recreational sporting facility. The choices are endless for the whole family with over 40 kilometres of mountain bike trails, cycling, equestrian and running facilities.

The future Stromlo Leisure Centre will add to an active lifestyle when it opens in early 2020. This brand new facility will feature a 50-metre pool, a splash park and gym.

Open Space and Parks in Wright

Link Park is the main park in Wright and includes shelter, fitness equipment and a public BBQ facility. There is also a large landscaped area for residents to enjoy. A boardwalk crosses Link Park and allows easy access from Dot Butler Street to David Fleay Street. Link Park also provides safe pedestrian access from Wright to Coombs under John Gorton Drive to allow children to walk or ride to Charles Weston School in Coombs.

The Section 23 open space includes a play area for younger children, a riding track as well as a climbing gym. The design focuses on the historic use of this area as a training ground for Robert De Castella and other renowned athletes, with a running track incorporated into the park. The park will feature the ‘Deeks Park’ signs which were salvaged after the 2003 bushfires and a large irrigated grassed area.
