"Everything You Would Want Right in Your Community"

Chisholm is located 16 kms south of Canberra. Simpson's Hill, on the boundary between Chisholm and Gilmore is a popular place for people to walk their dogs. There is a kurrajong tree at the top with a rope swing used by the children in the neighbourhood. As well as it there are abundant eucalyptus trees and birdlife. From the top of the hill there are fantastic views of the Brindabella Mountains, western Tuggeranong and the Bullen Range. It has one school which caters from preschool to Year 10. The local shopping centre meets all of the needs of the local community. It includes a major supermarket, pub, restaurants, petrol station, dental, medical and childcare services as well as other businesses. It has a number of sporting fields as well as tennis courts which can be enjoyed by the whole community. It is a great area for families.
