We respect and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together.


Gundaroo is an important example of a typical 19th century Australian village and has become a significant tourist attraction for the area. Similarly its unique character has attracted many new residents in recent years. Gundaroo is special because it does not have the urban sprawl which is associated with other small towns within commuting distance of Canberra.
