Suburb Overview

Bruce is a suburb of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia. Bruce was gazetted as a division on 6 June 1968 in recognition of Viscount Stanley Melbourne Bruce, the first Chancellor of the Australian National University and eighth Prime Minister of Australia. S. M. Bruce served as Chancellor from 1951 to 1961. The streets in Bruce are named after people and places associated with Australian tertiary education.

The Fern Hill section of the suburb was originally planned to be developed as a hub for information and communications technology businesses, with consequently some low-rise office buildings being developed off a part of Thynne Street, along with a small commercial centre including a cafe. However, as of the late 2000s, the area has instead come to see considerable residential development, with densities ranging from detached houses through to three storey apartment buildings, with commercial ground floor uses.

On Census night 2011, Bruce had a population of 6,390 people. Although, as of the late 2000s, the mean taxable income of individuals within the suburb is slightly lower than the ACT average, the suburb nonetheless is in the top decile in the Territory within the Australian Bureau of Statistics' SEIFA index of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage.

The suburb is also relatively well-served by public transport, with ACTION's IPT route running through it via the Calvary Hospital, Radford College, and the University of Canberra. The '7' and '3' bus routes also connect the suburb to Civic via Lyneham, Dickson, and Ainslie;and O'Connor and Acton respectively. Additionally, a number of cycle routes provide links to the Inner North, Belconnen Town Centre, and Kaleen.

Bruce is dominated by the greywacke of the Ordovician Pittman Formation. Bands of the black Acton Shale Member are found under University of Canberra and under the Calvary Hospital. Glebe Farm Adamellite is a coarse porphyritic micro adamellite of the Silurian age. It intrudes in the west north and southeast and southwest of University of Canberra. A triangle of Silurian age calcareous shale of the Canberra formation is in the north east of Bruce.
