Canberra Central Construction Projects

Canberra Central is an amalgamation of the North Canberra and South Canberra Regions. It is comprised of well established suburbs immediately to the north and south of Lake Burley Griffin. Its population was approximately 72,000 in 20111 and is projected to increase to approximately 86,000 in 2021.2

It includes the city centre, known as ‘Civic’. A range of diplomatic missions are located in the Region which is also home to Parliament House and the residences of the Prime Minister and Governor General of Australia. Canberra International Airport is adjacent to the Region.

The Canberra Centre, a major Canberra shopping centre, is located in Civic. It includes a range of major department stores, fashion and retail outlets, restaurants and supermarkets. The City Centre is to be revitalised and will include the construction of a number of large mixed developments. Another centre of construction activity is the suburb of Kingston on the southern edge of the lake, where a large number of residential developments are planned.

The Australian National University is located in the Region. It is Australia’s leading research university, and has a range of major planned and ongoing capital works. The major Defence establishments including the Australian Defence Force Academy, the Royal Military College Duntroon and HMAS Harman are also located in the Region.

There are a number of Commonwealth Government departments situated in the district including Attorney-General's, Defence, Treasury, Foreign Affairs and Trade and Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
