Wanniassa is named after a property owned by Thomas MacQuoid, a sheriff in NSW, in Tuggeranong. MacQuoid named the land after Wanayasa, a mountainous region in Java, Indonesia, believed to be inhabited by the gods. The suburb’s streets were named after Victorian state politicians.
Wanniassa is still one of the cheapest suburbs offering detached homes to home buyers in Canberra, with a median price of $540,000. $500,000 won’t get residential property investors anywhere in Canberra, save for the suburb of Ngunnawal in the Gungahlin district.
