Located to the northwest of Canberra’s city centre, the Belconnen Town Centre is currently undergoing a renewal. The Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan, has been designed to strengthen the town centre’s role as a diverse, vital and viable place. Lately there has been an influx of residential development in the heart of the town centre which takes advantage of the leafy foreshore of Lake Ginninderra, the surrounding dining and entertainment options and the vast employment centres.

Belconnen is also home to the Canberra International Sports and Aquatic Centre (CISAC), the University of Canberra, Canberra Stadium (home of the Brumbies and Raiders), the Australian Institute of Sport, Calvary Hospital, Belconnen Fresh Fruit Markets and a variety of private and public schools.
