Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
Taylor is a suburb in Gungahlin, Canberra, Australia. Development of the suburb began in 2017. It is named after magazine publisher Florence Mary Taylor, 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 to the south by Horse Park Drive. One Tree Hill lies to the northwest on the border with New South Wales. The suburb is located in north Gungahlin adjacent to the suburbs of Moncrieff, Casey, Jacka and Ngunnawal.
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).
