Suburbs & Development

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.

Location Map for Ainslie

Ainslie is a leafy suburb in the Inner North of Canberra, Australia.
The suburb is bounded by Limestone Ave and Majura Ave to the west, Mount Ainslie to the east, Quick Street to the south and the suburb of Hackett to the north.

Ainslie is within walking distance of the Canberra CBD (Civic), the nature trails of Mount Ainslie, the Australian War Memorial and the many Asian and other restaurants of Dickson. The combination of its central position, the abundance of early, heritage-listed houses and mature street trees makes it one of Canberra’s most desirable locations. The suburb has been one of the Canberra suburbs showing strongest increases in property values in recent years. Having been originally a predominantly blue-collar area with a high proportion of public housing, Ainslie has gradually gentrified.

The population count of Ainslie on census night 2021 was 5,376 people.

Downer

Location Map for Downer
Location Map for Downer

Downer is a suburb in Canberra Australia, in the Inner North. The suburb is bounded by Northbourne Avenue, Antill Street and Philip Avenue.

The suburb was gazetted in 1960 and named after Sir John Downer (1844 – 1915) Premier of South Australia and a member of the first Australian Senate in 1901. There is no specific theme for street names.

The buildings which make up the Downer community centre and former shops, were built for the CSIRO in 1930s, and the area now comprising Downer was an agricultural research facility for the CSIRO. The area now comprising the suburb was used between 1939-45 as a plantation for the growth of opium poppy to provide a source for medications in the unavailability of imported supplies. The large pine and gum trees which surround the block around the shops were planted in this time as a wind break for the CSIRO building. Large trees (Camden Woolybutts) along Swinden street were also planted then, as Swinden street was the driveway for the CSIRO building, where it connected to Northbourne Avenue. With the development of the suburb the trees became diseased during the 1980s and a program is underway to replace them with more amenable local varieties of gum. As of September 2008, all but two or three of the older Swinden Street gums have been removed.

Downer has a local oval between Frencham, Melba, Bonython and Bradfield streets, with a shopping centre. However in 2005 the shopping centre was vacant due partly to the poor location of the centre away from major roads. There is also the Canberra Business Centre nearby, which at one time was a school. The Downer Club, which has an observatory, is nearby, although not technically in Downer, on the Dickson side of Antill Street.

The population count of Downer on census night 2021 was 4,296 people.
