Russell, inner north suburb in Canberra, Australia. Russell is one of the smallest suburbs in Canberra, comprising a number of government offices but no private residences. It is probably best known for the headquarters of the Australian Defence Force, which is housed in the Russell Offices complex.
It is bounded by Morshead Drive, Parkes Way, Borella Street and Constitution Avenue. Mount Pleasant lies just to the east, between Russell and Duntroon which are part of the suburb of Campbell. The Australian American War Memorial is located in Russell. To the west lies Kings Park and Grevillea Park, on the shore of Lake Burley Griffin.
