Finding a House
Your dream home is waiting for you
Owning your own home with a backyard and a BBQ, living in a community of friends… it’s the Great Australian Dream. In Goulburn, it’s still an affordable dream. Whether you want to rent, buy or build; live in a modern or heritage home; in the city, one of our villages or in the bush; hobby farm or primary production; you’ll be spoilt for choice.
The Goulburn region welcomes newcomers, in fact, 62% of our population were not born here – they’ve chosen to live in Goulburn Mulwaree. In a recent survey, the most common reasons for moving here were: for work, connection with friends/family already here and the rural/country atmosphere.
Goulburn is a safe, community-orientated ‘township’ with city advantages such as boutique shopping, quality education, medical and communication services, without the stress of traffic jams and supermarket queues. The city is surrounded by natural landscapes peppered with picturesque villages, views of the big skies and clean country air.
But isn’t Goulburn in a drought? Goulburn’s water supply has been further secured by the completion of the Highland Source Project that delivers water to Goulburn via an 81km pipeline from Wingecarribee Reservoir.
The Goulburn region is growing. To ensure this growth is well managed – that lifestyle and amenity are retained and improved for future generations – various development control plans and policies are in place.
