Our History


Urambi Village started as an idea in 1973 with the intention of developing a new style of housing. The new style would be environmentally friendly, and provide a highly desirable place for people to live. It would demonstrate that the standard house on the traditional quarter-acre could be improved upon.

A housing cooperative was established to develop Urambi Village, which is on a hillside not far from the Murrumbidgee river, just south of Canberra City.
