Canberra’s second ‘satellite city’, the substantial locale that is Belconnen was built throughout the 1970s. Its town centre is on the shores of Lake Ginninderra and is home to a recently re-developed Westfield shopping centre with an extensive range of retail stores, a dining precinct and many government departments.

The majority of the residential suburbs are predominantly characterised by detached, single-family homes on suburban blocks, with pockets of medium-density housing units and townhouses. The district continues to grow with the development of Lawson, Ginninderry and the new suburb of Whitlam. If you like to be close to the action but still want some room to breathe, Belconnen is an excellent choice.

THE LIFESTYLE

Spacious suburban streets that are safe, with all the convenience of the CBD nearby

You can almost traverse the entire district without stepping foot on any concrete, such is the extensive linked network of green spaces, parks and sports fields. There are handy village shopping centres everywhere, including Macquarie, Holt, Charnwood, Hawker and Kaleen.

A number of key arterial roads running through the district easily connect residents to the city and other Canberra districts.

Belconnen Town Centre hosts a number of government department head offices including the Department of Home Affairs and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The spectacular, uplifting view from the top of the Pinnacle Nature Reserve and the peaceful environs of Lake Ginninderra.
