Huge Australia Day festival at Harrington Grove boasted something for everyone




Australia Day 2018 at Harrington Grove was our largest event ever, with over 800 people turning out on a bright summer’s day to celebrate the day as a community.

To be expected, the pool was the hot ticket for the day, but for those a bit more adventurous, four giant waterslides were another great option for kids and adults alike to cool down.

At midday, we fired up the BBQ and the free sausage sizzle fed the crowd for the whole day, with snow cones and Ice-cream giving everyone a sweet treat.

Summertime sensations

Summertime sensations

Summertime is a truly spectacular season at Harrington Grove. The sleeves are shorter and we get used to not having to take a jacket with us when we venture out! The community facilities beckon residents with promises of refreshing dips and neighbourly laughs, and the longer days tempt everyone to go slower and soak it all in.

During the warmer months, the Harrington Grove Country Club and Magnolia Club become homes away from home for Harrington Grove residents. The Michelia Club is also available to residents and each offer pools and barbecue facilities that are ideal for whiling away the afternoon or enjoying a twilight swim. The lush green lawns are ideal for casual picnics and energetic children alike, while the full-sized tennis courts and gyms provide even more options.

With everyone having a bit more time on their hands, summer is the ideal time to set up community events. Why not start a round robin tennis tournament? Perhaps a touch footy competition? Even a mums and bubs casual swimming session? With a range of world-class facilities accessible within walking distance, Harrington Grove residents have a bounty of endless summertime possibilities at their fingertips.

Investing in the environment: Harrington Estate’s long-term plan for sustainability

Investing in the environment: Harrington Estate’s long-term plan for sustainability




One of the most important aspects of how Harrington Estates have approached Harrington Grove is the preservation of large areas of Cumberland Plan Woodland within the estate.

Despite early stages of the development requiring the removal of some areas of bushland, embracing and nurturing large areas of the surrounding Harrington Forest have always been central to the long-term vision for Harrington Grove. To further enhance this vision, Harrington Estates have created a sustainable funding model to ensure the continued growth and preservation of natural flora.

To further improve the biodiversity of the local area and to provide additional funds for the management of the bushland, Harrington Estates entered into an agreement with the Commonwealth Department of the Environment to establish a native seed nursery onsite to substantially increase the diversity of plant species used in local revegetation projects.

A pilot nursery was established to test the viability of growing small, herbaceous species in a controlled environment and collecting the seed to use in local revegetation projects.

The success of the pilot nursery has allowed Harrington Estates to invest in upgrading the nursery to a commercial scale operation, with the funds from the sale of seed to revegetation projects going towards the long-term maintenance of bushland in Harrington Grove and nearby Catherine Park Estate.

This has allowed additional financial support for an existing community scheme as well as increasing the diversity of species used.
Harrington Estates are proud of their efforts to boost and revegetate the areas within and surrounding their projects, providing a long-term environmental solution.

Harrington Grove: The Epitome Of Liveability

Harrington Grove: The Epitome Of Liveability

Residents already agree that Harrington Grove is a magical place to live but the most recent award provides even stronger evidence. Harrington Grove has been named the best Masterplanned Community in NSW (2016) by the UDIA NSW | Meriton Awards for Excellence.

But most importantly, it is the sense of place and range of community facilities that are most sought in awarding this title.

This complements Harrington Grove’s award for Australian Residential Development of the Year (2014). The judges for that year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia Awards for Excellence noted the holistic approach and respect for the natural environment in Harrington Grove.

“The judges were particularly impressed by the overall quality of the development and attention to detail in every facet of the project. The restoration of bushland and creek lines and their integration with the residential precincts is exemplary," stated the award notes by the judges.

Connected Communities: Key To A Happy Life

Connected Communities: Key To A Happy Life

An entire section of modern literature is devoted to describing the benefits of social connections. Strong connections are crucial to modern life for everything from emotional wellbeing to physical health, and all of this goes back to where we live, the people we meet and those we share our space with.

At Harrington Grove, this is where we excel.

'The key to a happy life,' says author and psychologist Paul Bloom, 'is sustained relationships, challenging work and connections to the community.' This has never been easier to achieve than at Harrington Grove, where neighbourhood centres, local parks and winding paths connect the land as much as it does the people, building a firm foundation for a strong and social community.

Update On The Restoration Of Orielton Homestead

Harrington Park House and Orielton Homestead are two of the most historic houses in NSW, respectively located at the heart of Harrington Park and Harrington Grove. As part of the planning and rezoning of Harrington Grove, Harrington Estates undertook plans to restore both houses.

Residents’ success: New South West Rail Link to be developed underground, sparing homes

Harrington Grove is delighted at the NSW government’s decision to construct the new South West Rail Link underground. Following months of discussion, the announcement has been jubilantly received by residents as it means more than 40 homes in Harrington Grove’s Wildfire will be spared. It also positively impacts upon the endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland that is so integral to Harrington Grove.

On behalf of Harrington Grove residents, Harrington Estates Managing Director Terry Goldacre is thankful to the NSW government for its consideration. “The NSW government listened to our residents and has made the best possible decision for them. We welcome the amenity of a new train line and the opportunity this presents to our residents and the wider community; having it situated underground is the best decision on every level,” he says.

Mr Goldacre is especially grateful to Chris Patterson MP, Member for Camden. “Mr Patterson has shown himself to be a loyal representative of the people of South West Sydney, especially regarding this issue. He went above and beyond to ensure that Camden received the best viable outcome in the form of an underground rail line, and we are appreciative of his support,” he says.

The South West Rail Link is set to run underground from Oran Park, beneath Harrington Grove and continue further south to Narellan. It will also include stations at Rossmore, Bringelly and North Bringelly, and will be an extension of the recently completed South West Rail Link that currently operates between Leppington and Glenfield. It will service the growing needs of the South West and will eventually link up with the future Badgerys Creek Airport.

Today’s announcement is positive on many levels for Harrington Grove and the wider community. More than 40 homes have been spared, and residents who would have been near the train lines needn’t fear the loud and disruptive sights and sounds. Just as significantly, the underground rail will also protect Harrington Forest, a substantial area of critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland that plays a strategically significant role in meeting the biodiversity offset requirements in the region. Harrington Forest also serves a substantial amenity and recreational role for residents.

“Our community will enjoy the convenience and benefits of the nearby train line while retaining the beauty and serenity that is so integral to the Harrington Grove lifestyle. Again, we are truly thankful to the NSW government and incredibly proud of our residents for submitting their opinions in a peaceful, intelligent manner. It says a lot about them, and it also speaks volumes about the government who granted their wishes,” says Mr Goldacre.
