Taylor, Australian Capital Territory
Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
Taylor is a designated suburb in Gungahlin, Canberra, Australia, though the first land release is yet to be announced. The suburb is named after magazine publisher Florence Taylor OBE, who was editor of and writer for several Australian building industry journals including the influential Building magazine. The suburb is approximately 4 km from the Gungahlin Town Centre and 16 km from the centre of Canberra and bounded by Horse Park Drive. The suburb is located in north Gungahlin near the existing suburb of Ngunnawal and adjacent to the future suburbs of Casey and Moncrieff.
The rocks in Taylor are from the late middle Silurian period. Hawkins volcanics green grey dacite and quartz andesite are in the west. The Canberra Formation is separated by a fault in the east side. It consists of slatey shale and mudstone, with north east trending bands of acid volcanics (dacite and andesite).
