Eat, Drink & Play

Casey Jones Pub

The perfect spot for a family weeknight dinner, sneaky sesh or private event, Casey Jones Pub is a go-to amongst locals. Serving pub grub with love, get all the classics just the way you like it, with a craft beer or two.

1882 Hall

Located only 10 minutes away on the outskirts of Canberra, 1882 Hall is another local goodie that’s worth the visit. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, expect wholesome, no-fuss cooking including a stellar wood-fired pizza menu.

One Tree Hill Walking Trail

Look over Taylor and connecting suburbs at the One Tree Hill Lookout. An 8.4km return walk, it’s the perfect 1.5-2 hour walk to kickstart your weekend outdoors.

Moncrieff Community Recreation Park

Popular amongst young families, the Moncrieff Community Recreation Park has everything children and parents need to enjoy an afternoon or entire day in the sunshine. Featuring a colourful playground with a slide, netting tower and rope bridge, plus rock climbing, swings, spinning tubes, slide, table tennis and a multi-use court, it is sure to keep the kids entertained for hours. There are also barbecues, picnic tables and grassed areas. Your furry little friend is also welcome.

Property Development: SkyHaus

Redefining affordable living in Gungahlin, SkyHaus apartments and extra townhouses is the first apartment project in Taylor.

Consisting of 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments and 3 bedroom townhouses, from any floor, enjoy views to the sky through the central atrium and make full use of the gym, rooftop sun beds and plunge pool, spa and sauna.

A generous offering, the townhouses are designed for the modern family, with each home including 3 full-size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a study nook and 2 separate living spaces spread across 2-storeys. Also, with a green front porch and backyard terrace allowing residents to soak in the natural surrounds.

A note from a local…

What I love about Taylor is the nature. There are vast walking trails and nature reserves to explore, which I love doing with my two Cavoodles Satia and Oli. Along with the variety of playgrounds, the area encourages an active lifestyle for all ages. My partner and I also love how close in proximity Taylor is to the wineries in Murrumbateman. In only 25 minutes you can taste your way through an abundance of wonderful local wineries.
