North Canberra Location Map

North Canberra, also known as the Inner North, is made up of the central city area (Civic), the Australian National University, the University of NSW at ADFA, Duntroon, the Australian Catholic University, and 14 suburbs.

In the 2016 Census it housed over 53,002 people (13.3% of the Australian Capital Territory’s total population) in over 21,555 dwellings. The area is rapidly transforming, with a major investment in a new light rail service between Civic and Gungahlin.

North Canberra forms part of the Territory’s Kurrajong electorate, which covers much of the original site surveyed by Charles Scrivener and shown on Walter Burley Griffin’s and Marion Mahony Griffin’s plans for the national capital dating back to 1912.

It is one of the oldest parts of the city, incorporating large original land grants to Robert Campbell and Joshua John Moore in the 1830s next to the Molonglo River, and many smaller farms and properties pre-federation. This was all Ngunnawal land, and many traditional owners and their elders (past and present) live in the region and have enduring links to this land today.
