Surburb overview

Kingston is a centrally located suburb in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory. It is among the suburbs bordered by the State Circle and located within 4 kilometres of the heart of the city. The suburb was named in honour of former premier of South Australia Charles Cameron Kingston, who also served as a minister in the first Australian Commonwealth Government.

Around the time of its establishment, Kingston was home to lower-ranking civil servants and labourers for Canberra’s early infrastructure works. It has since evolved into a sought-after precinct, famous for its nightlife and burgeoning arts scene. As one of Canberra’s oldest towns, Kingston has a rich history and culture, which makes it one of the Australia’s top heritage destinations. It also has a foreshore offering a serene view of Lake Burley Griffin.

Developments are centred around bustling lifestyle corners, such as the Kingston Kingsborough, which comprise of shophouses and residential units. The Kingston foreshore, in particular, is one of the best areas for interstate property investments and relocating real estate buyers who are downsizing from their home in abutting suburbs. Residents are spoilt for choice as the precinct features a number of restaurants and coffee spots.
