Location Map for O’Connor

O’Connor is an Inner North suburb in Canberra, Australia. It lies between the suburbs of Lyneham and Turner. It was named after Richard Edward O’Connor (1851-1912), who was a judge in the High Court and a founder of the Australian constitution. Street names in O’Connor are named after explorers, Australian flora, legislators and pioneers. The suburb was gazetted on 20 September 1928. O’Connor is bounded by Wattle and David streets, and also includes the Bruce/O’Connor ridge nature reserve, the hilly area with many trees that lies between the houses in O’Connor, and the Australian Institute of Sport. Sports such as soccer, rugby and cricket are often played at the ovals at O’Connor district playing fields.

O’Connor has a small shopping center with a pub/bar, supermarket, a couple of restaurants and a pharmacy. The YHA youth hostel which was previously located in Dryandra street in O’Connor, relocated to 7 Akuna Street in Civic.
