South Canberra or the Inner South is a central district of Canberra, the capital city of Australia.

South Canberra is located to the south of Canberra's city centre, on the south bank of Lake Burley Griffin.

It is one of the oldest parts of Canberra, and is built in part in accordance to Walter Burley Griffin's designs. Unlike the later districts in Canberra that are built as separate satellite cities, South Canberra is only separated from North Canberra by Lake Burley Griffin. The two districts combined form the district of Central Canberra and share Civic as their central commercial area.

According to the 2016 census, South Canberra's population was 27,007.[1]

Sites of significance

In 1984 the National Capital Development Commission commissioned the identification and documentation of sites of significance in the ACT. The results for Inner Canberra were published in 1988. Sites with both natural and cultural significance were identified. Many of these are listed on the ACT Heritage Register.

At the 2016 census, South Canberra had a population of 27,007 of which 48.4% were male and 51.6% were female. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made up 1.2 per cent of the population, which was lower than the national and territory averages. The median age of people in South Canberra was 40 years, which was slightly higher than the national median of 38 years. Children aged 0–14 years made up 14.6 per cent of the population and people aged 65 years and over made up 15.0 per cent of the population. Of people in the area aged 15 years and over, 46.3 per cent were married and 10.6 per cent were either divorced or separated.[1]

Population growth in South Canberra between the 2001 census and the 2006 census was minus 2.0 per cent; in the five years to the 2011 census, the population grew by 2.1 per cent; and in the five years to the 2016 census, the population grew by 11.8 per cent. When compared with total population growth of Australia for the same periods, being 5.78 per cent, 8.32 per cent and 8.88 respectively, population growth in South Canberra was slower than the national average except in the last period.[2][3][4][1] The median weekly income for residents within North Canberra was significantly higher than the national and territory averages.[1]


The Inner South is represented by:

  • ACT Legislative Assembly: The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was granted self-government by the Commonwealth Parliament in 1988 with the passage of the Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988. The first Assembly was elected in 1989. There are currently 25 members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs). Members are elected every four years by the people of the ACT to represent them and make decisions on their behalf. The ACT Legislative Assembly [5] has five multi-member electorates: Yerrabi; Ginninderra; Kurrajong; Murrumbidgee and; Brindabella, each electing five members.
  • Inner South Canberra Community Council: The Inner South Canberra Community Council (ISCCC) [6] is a voluntary, not for profit, community-based association operating in the inner south area of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory. The ISCCC is recognised by the ACT Government as a peak community body representing the interests of the local residents, businesses and organisations. The ISCCC’s objective is to preserve and improve the social, cultural, economic and environmental well being of Inner South Canberra and the Inner South Canberra community. The ISCCC Is not a local government.
