    City (ACT 2601) Suburb Information

Suburb History

Name

Although the retail and commercial heart of Canberra appears on the map as City, it is more commonly known as Civic Centre. Walter Burley Griffin named it Civic Centre on his original plan for the National Capital, but when the official opening of the first hops was held in 1927, the then Prime Minister, Mr Bruce, objected and the name was changed to City. Popular usage has prevailed and Walter Burley Griffin’s name is the one that is now mainly used, although it is often shortened to Civic.

Street Naming Theme

Streets in the City Centre are aboriginal words, as well as being named after pioneers and capital cities.
