Surburb overview

The Canberra suburb of Curtin is situated in the eastern side of its city centre next to the suburbs of Hughes, Lyons, Deakin and Yarralumla. Curtin was named in honour of John Curtin, the Australian prime minister from 1941 to 1945.

Curtin's landscape is marked by irregular slopes and flatlands with dense foliage. Its soil appears arid and ruddy due to its volcanic content. Horse paddocks and playing fields are also located on its western side.

Tight-knit community

A relatively young suburb, Curtin was developed in 1950s and only spent its golden anniversary a few years ago. The suburb was based on the Radburn design, which was characterised by a consecutive row of houses sharing a common yard out front, and with the back of the homes facing the street. Most of the Canberran suburbs developed during this era are planned after this design movement.

Curtin has a strong sense of community, where locally-owned shops thrive and are patronised. Residents are notoriously proud of the heritage of their humble neighbourhood, and are quite steadfast in fighting for the preservation of their landmarks and decades-old shops. A consortium of residents, for instance, won against a major developer which submitted a proposal to erect a high-rise mixed-use development near the town square that could eclipse homegrown shops. Sentiments against the redevelopment prevailed.
