Yowani Country Club occupies a prime site at the intersection of Canberra’s main entry axes—Northbourne Avenue, the Barton Highway and the Federal Highway. Yowani Grounds will enhance this main approach to the National Capital by creating a new benchmark in liveability, developing a connected and sustainable community with a distinctive character.
The development will be a socially inclusive urban village characterised by medium-density housing, mixed-use zoning, excellent access to public and active transport and an emphasis on pedestrian areas and public spaces.
Yowani Grounds connects a new mixed-use precinct with the park setting of the existing Yowani Country Club.
The development model follows a gradual shift in scale. The residential component will see a sweep of low-rise terraces and townhouses situated along the meandering path of Sullivan’s Creek, featuring uninterrupted views over the golf course. Density increases towards Northbourne Avenue, with an activated retail and office ground plane forming a dynamic edge. Central to the precinct is its core commercial zone, which includes retail, cafes and landscaped public open space.
The result will be a unique and integrated precinct, of a character that is particular to Canberra and the Northbourne corridor.
Situated at the intersection of Canberra’s main entry axes—Northbourne Avenue, the Barton Highway and the Federal Highway, Yowani Country Club is one of the first sights for visitors into Canberra.
Yowani’s unique location brings together a host of recreational and sporting facilities—the Golf Club itself, Netball ACT, Beach Volleyball Courts, the National Hockey Centre and the Lyneham Playing Fields, to name a few.
Nestled among the low-density residential areas of Downer, Lyneham and Dickson, Yowani is part of the Inner North and enjoys access to all the same amenities including the wide array of retail and dining options at Dickson Shops and neighbouring local shops. Importantly, its proximity to the City is made even more accessible by its location on Canberra’s new light rail network, with the Swinden St stop on its doorstep.
