Googong Awakes

Googong, New South Wales, Australia

Despite the sub zero temperatures of this cold winter morning, the sunrise created a welcoming warmth to the countryside before me.

This location is now home to the Googong township, situated on a 780 hectare site just 16km south-east of Parliament House in Canberra. The picturesque site was formerly grazing land and is characterised by gently undulating slopes and plains, and dominated by the dramatic mountain backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges.
