"Safe and tranquil suburb for young families"

Thurgoona is a fantastic location for young families with a mixture of new housing estates for new builds and existing estates developed in the 80s and 90s. The suburb is very safe and offers a peaceful lifestyle on large suburban blocks, surrounded by pockets of native vegetation. It has lots of local amenity, including the Charles Sturt University campus, multiple childcare, primary and secondary school options, ample open space and sporting fields, including football grounds, the Thurgoona Golf Club and Thurgoona Tennis Club. For boating and water skiing enthusiasts, Lake Hume is only a 10 minute drive away. For essential shopping, there is Thurgoona plaza which has all the essentials like a Woolworths supermarket, bank branch, bakery, butcher, pharmacy and gym. For wider shopping choices, its just a 10 minute drive into the Albury CBD. Thurgoona is the growth corridor of Albury and should continue to grow a wider range of shopping and commercial spaces as the suburb expands over the next decade.

"Great place, good people, going ahead"

best spot to live in albury, highway is only a short drive away to get to albury itself is only a 5 min drive, lavington again is only 5 minutes, but why go into either, new shopping centre offers a woolworths, chemist, bakery, newsagent, buther, pizza shop, thai, indian, chicken, fish and chips. CSU have relocated here so matched with the two primary schools and 1 secondary school education is covered. the local golf club offers more variety again for meals, gaming, accomodation or a beer then there is the kinross hotel which offers great dining, great beer, great entertainment in a safe environment away from the ferrals of dean st. short drive to the wier, airport and train station. footy field, cricket field, netball and golf covers most bases. Thurgoona - got it all!
