Just like finding a life partner, choosing the right area to live is an arduous task. Wouldn’t it be great if there were some kind of dating app designed for suburbs? Then it could be as simple as reading a quick bio and swiping left or right, depending on whether we like what we see.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a “dating profile” for the new suburb of Throsby. This swanky suburb might just be your perfect match. New to Gungahlin, Throsby is also looking to acquaint with some other individuals. Get to know more about Thorsby via his (or her) profile below:
Family: My immediate family members are Gunghalin, Kenny, Harrison, Franklin and Mitchell. I’m also closely related to Forde, Bonner and Amaroo.
Friends: I’m pretty easy-going and like to be friends with everyone. I actually have a bus route within 400m of every home, so it makes seeing friends super easy and convenient.
Location: I’m adjacent to Horse Park Drive and am just a short 2.5kms from the Gungahlin Town Centre (walking distance!) or 11kms from Canberra City, so if you want to meet for a drink I can be there in a flash. I’m also situated very close to many schools, including Harrison Primary Schoold and Franklin Early Childhood School, so if you’ve got kids, that won’t be a problem.
About me: I am Gungahlin’s newest residential development. To be honest, I consider myself pretty good looking. Perhaps that’s because I’m surrounded by Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Nature Reserves. I have views of Black Mountain and Brindabella Ranges – you should pop by for a visit some time and check it out for yourself.
I’m very environmentally conscious. I’ve got a 6 star energy rating and utilise water sensitive urban design to ensure there is minimal impact on my surrounding ecosystems.
I am also a member of the mingle program, an inclusive initiative that aims to build vibrant communities through a range of activities such as new resident programs, family events, community working groups and much more.
Interests: I’m an outdoorsy kinda guy. I love wide open spaces, cycling, walking and running. In fact, I’ve got plenty of paths to explore. I also like to let my inner child run wild at the playground.
Perfect first date: Hiking up the amazing hill top near my place, then settling in for a home made dinner, which would probably be a nice outdoor BBQ.
Fun facts: My streets are named after local Australian fauna like Koala Close, Glider Crescent and Yabby Way. My main thoroughfare Bettong Avenue, which is named after a small brown-grey nocturnal marsupial. Cute, right?
