Suburb Overview

Bonython is a suburb of Tuggeranong, a township in southern Canberra, capital city of Australia.

The suburb is named after Sir John Langdon Bonython, the owner of The Advertiser who promoted Federation, and was a member of the first Australian parliament. Original concept plans for Tuggeranong indicate that the suburb was initially to be known as "Stranger". The name "Bonython" was declared when it was gazetted as a suburb of Canberra on 17 October 1986. Streets are named after South Australians, especially journalists.

Prior to 1986, the land upon which Bonython now sits was grazing land, mainly grassland with scattered eucalypt trees. By 1989 construction of houses and the Stranger Pond water quality control pond began and Canberra

On 18 January 2003 the disastrous Canberra bushfire reached Bonython late in the afternoon. By that time, the winds had eased and the fire intensity was such that, where the fire reached housing on the western and southern fringes, residents were able to keep the fire at bay at their fencelines.

Bonython is an elongate suburb, straddling the eastern and northern sides of Mount Stranger, a low hillside that rises about 100 metres above the Tuggeranong valley floor. Stranger Pond sits at the northern end of the suburb, formed by a manmade dam across a natural drainage channel. The Pond surroundings were landscaped early during the suburb

Bonython adjoins the suburbs of Greenway to the north, Isabella Plains to the east and Gordon to the south. On the western side of Bonython is a nature reserve bordering the Murrumbidgee River.

Like many Canberra suburbs, Bonython accommodates a dormitory community, with the working population commuting to places of employment in nearby Tuggeranong or elsewhere within Canberra or Queanbeyan. The suburb is conveniently close to a number of major employers in the nearby Tuggeranong Town Centre. Employment in the Town Centre is provided by a number of Commonwealth government agencies, such as Centrelink, Medicare Australia and the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs as well as numerous retail outlets in and around the Tuggeranong Hyperdome shopping mall. Many Bonython residents can walk to work

Being so close to the Tuggeranong Town Centre, Bonython contains very few shops of its own

On Barr-Smith Avenue, close to the Bonython Primary School, is the Stepping Stones Child Care Centre. This Centre provides childcare to working parents.

Between Bonython Primary School and Drakeford Drive is the Bonython Neighbourhood oval. This is a community oval, used by school students on school days and by various Tuggeranong sporting clubs on weekends. The oval has suffered during the drought and is currently not being maintained due to water restrictions. Consequently, the oval is unsuitable for community use and will require restoration if water restrictions are eased in future.

In 2007, the final release of residential land in Bonython began with the development of West Bonython, between the northern shore of Stranger Pond and Athllon Drive. The development was undertaken by the ACT Land Development Agency - this estate was initially promoted as 'Brindabellas', but that label was quietly dropped and the area is now simply part of Bonython. By June 2010, only one block of land had yet to be built on - this was one of the first blocks sold. Construction started on the "Montana" townhouse complex in December 2010.
