Surburb overview

Turner is a suburb situated on the north-west of Civic and bounded by Barry Drive, David Street, and Northbourne Avenue. Gazetted in 1928, the suburb was named after Australian politician George Turner, who was one of the founders of the constitution. The suburb's street names were taken after writers, pioneers and politicians.

Turner was one of the first Canberran suburbs that had implemented the garden city design. This meant that power lines were concealed at the back of houses to keep streetscapes uncluttered. Streetlamps were lower in height and estates featured service lanes.


Turner's population numbers 4,000, with a median age of 31 years, based on latest census data. The majority of its residents were originally from Australia, while the rest were born in China, England, India, Vietnam and New Zealand.
