An introduction to Taylor Suburb

Table of Contents


Taylor Suburb is a recent addition to the ACT. It was planned and initiated by The Suburban Land Agency (SLA) in 2017. 

Situated to Canberra’s extreme north, it is on the border between New South Wales and Canberra.

Its population and popularity have grown each year since. At ABM Homes, we have helped several families build their dream homes with our House and land Packages in Taylor.

Since we have been intimately involved with the project, we created this guide to help prospective homebuyers along their journey.

We have included an overview of the project as well as other key facts, including a snapshot of life at Taylor.

This suburb is named after Florence Mary Taylor, a doyen of the Australian building industry. She broke through many glass ceilings in the male-dominated construction industry, becoming the first-ever qualified female architect in Australia in 1909. 

She was a very popular editor and writer at many publications, most notably who was editor of and writer for several Australian building industry journals, including the influential Building magazine. 

Florence was a trailblazer in the town planning field, which is why naming this suburb Taylor is a fitting addition to her legacy.
