Surburb overview

Theodore is a suburb in the Tuggeranong district of Canberra, bordered by the mountainous landscapes of the Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve and bounded by the arterial roads of Monaro Highway and Tharwa Drive. Theodore was gazetted on 5 August 1975, on the same date as other suburbs in the district.

The suburb’s namesake is Edward Granville Theodore, who served as a premier of Queensland and was a member of the Parliament. Streets in the suburb were named in honour of civilians who were involved in the war effort during both world wars.


Theodore's population is composed of 3,799 residents, with a median age of 33. Out of this number, 1,045 are families. Households are comprised of 2.8 people on average. Each household has a median weekly income of $2,123.

Prices are rising fast, however, and home buyers should strike while the iron is hot. In the past 12 months alone, home prices have increased by 21.28 per cent to $570,000 based on the latest property data.

Apartments are lagging behind in terms of price growth but on an upward trend, nonetheless. Rents are a different story, however, as yield is greater for apartments for rent than homes. The median weekly rent for detached properties is $370.
