Casey ACT 2913

Casey is a suburb in Canberra, ACT, approximately 4 km from the Gungahlin Town Centre and about 13 km from the centre of Canberra. The suburb is named after Richard Casey an Australian politician, diplomat and later the 16th Governor-General of Australia. It is bound by Horse Park Drive and Clarrie Hermes Drive. Casey is located in north-west Gungahlin, adjacent to the suburbs of Nicholls and Ngunnawal, and the future suburbs of Kinlyside, Taylor and Moncrieff.
Until 1990, Casey was part of the former ‘Gold Creek’ a 3,940-acre (15.9 km2) rural property with the Gold Creek Homestead at its centre. The relative flat and even topography of portions of the suburb of Casey was ideal for various pursuits including horse racing, and was the site of a practice track for racing horses. A stand of trees parallel to Horse Park Drive which pre-dates the establishment of the village (now the suburb) of Hall marks the original alignment of the Queanbeyan-Yass Road.
