Dairy Road Cultural Planning and Program

Dairy Road is a neighbourhood slowly developing in Canberra’s East Lake, five kilometres southeast of Canberra's city centre and three kilometres from the airport. Slated for mixed used precinct development in the future, the location is already home to some of Canberra’s favourite makers and producers, as well as start-up ventures and small businesses.

Molongo’s visionary plan for Dairy Road includes a carefully curated and enriching cultural program, building upon the successes of NewActon while also carving a new cultural identity for this unique site.
