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 2016 was 5,189 people.
