Why Whitlam?

It’s a place that feels like home.

With views from almost every angle, Whitlam offers an entirely new perspective on Canberra’s scenic surrounds. Gaze west as the sun sets over the expansive Brindabella Ranges or face east to watch it rise with Black Mountain and the National Arboretum in your sights.

Beauty is an endearing feature of Whitlam, with large expanses of green, open spaces and 5,000 trees generously distributed – plus nature trails nearby. It’s a place full of opportunities. A place for adventure and family fun.

And did we mention? Whitlam is only 9kms to Canberra’s CBD.

Block considerations

It’s worth considering:

  • what’s nearby (and what’s planned for future stages)
  • your preferred block size
  • the orientation of your block, including whether it is on a corner

Given Whitlam’s landscape, there will be both flat and sloped blocks. It’s important to know the slope details for your preferred block as this will affect how you design and build your home, and may impact on your budget. Be ready to check the contour lines on the Block Details Plan when it becomes available.

Whitlam has been designed to maximise passive solar and minimise energy consumption, as well as protect native flora and fauna. Given these environmental considerations, get inspired by sustainable design and building techniques for your future.

Get your paperwork sorted now

Before blocks are released, now is the time to get to know your financial position and purchase budget. Research any legal or planning requirements so you know what to expect.

You’ll need to seek approval for a loan – if that’s how you’re financing your purchase – and be ready to pay for things like stamp duty or professional services.

Locate a solicitor to help review any contracts. It’s also worth getting professional advice from design and construction experts as early as possible. Download our Buyers Guide today.
