One of the fastest growing regions in Australia (2017), the District of Gungahlin is one of the original eighteen districts of the Australian Capital Territory. The greater Gungahlin City consists of the suburbs of Nicholls, Ngunnawal, Palmerston, Franklin, Harrison, Throsby, Forde, Casey, Taylor, Moncrief and Amaroo. Just over the hill to the north is the small village of Hall. The edges of the suburb are on Horse Park Drive, Gundaroo Drive and Gungahlin Drive. The town of Gungahlin was part of the original 1957 plan for future development in the ACT and in 1991 was officially launched as Canberra's fourth 'town' by the ACT Chief Minister.

Gungahlin is one of the five satellite cities that make up the ACT. The other locations include Canberra North and South, Tuggeranong, Woden, and Belconnen.

Gungahlin is serviced by the first stage of the light rail and is fast becoming a self-sufficient satellite city of the ACT.
