History of Molonglo Valley
The District of Molonglo Valley is one of the nineteen districts of the Australian Capital Territory used in land administration, and the only district that was not created in 1966. The district is subdivided into divisions (suburbs), sections and blocks and is the newest district of Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The district is planned to consist of thirteen suburbs, planned to contain 33,000 dwellings, with an expected population of between 50,000 and 73,000. To be developed in three stages over more than ten years, the district will contain a principal town centre and a secondary group centre, with residential suburbs located to the south and north of the Molonglo River; located to the west of Lake Burley Griffin.

The name Molonglo is derived from an Aboriginal expression meaning "the sound of thunder".

The traditional custodians of the district are the indigenous people of the Ngunnawal tribe.

Following the transfer of land from the Government of New South Wales to the Commonwealth Government in 1911, the eighteen original districts were established in 1966 by the Commonwealth via the gazettal of the Districts Ordinance 1966 (Cth) which, after the enactment of the Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988, became the Districts Act 1966. This Act was subsequently repealed by the ACT Government and the district is now administered subject to the Districts Act 2002.

The land was used for pine forests prior to the devastation caused by the 2003 Canberra bushfires; leaving the land empty and ready for potential development. To accommodate future expected population growth and housing demand, The Canberra Spatial Plan, already in development at that time and formally released during 2004, proposed increased urban density along established (road) transport corridors. Further land releases were proposed, including continuing development in the district of Gungahlin by maintaining the 1967 "Y-Plan"; and the development of new releases in the Molonglo Valley, previously set aside as green corridors.

The district was formally gazetted on 14 October 2010.

URIARRA CROSSING RECREATION AREA

Uriarra Crossing is a swimming and recreation area on the Murrumbidgee River, less than half an hour west of Canberra's CBD. To get there, visitors need to drive past the new suburb of Denman Prospect, before the road turns into a windy, scenic country drive towards the hills west of Canberra. From this direction, the first turn-off you see is the Uriarra East Reserve which is the most popular area for swimming, picnics and games of cricket on the grassy reserve. On this side of the river there are little sandy beaches to paddle off from, to feel the crystal clear waters that come straight down from the Snowy Mountains - and yes, it's cold!
