Suburb Overview

Macquarie is a suburb of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia. Macquarie was gazetted as a division on 22 June 1967 in recognition of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, a former Governor of New South Wales. Streets in Macquarie are named after contemporaries of Governor Macquarie.

On Census night 2006, Macquarie had a population of 2,385 people. The census shows that Macquarie residents have an average age of 35 compared to a Canberra average of 34. The average weekly earnings were $400

The population of Macquarie is predominantly Australian-born at 71.9% with the second most common birth place being the United Kingdom at 7.2% of the population. Accommodation is predominantly separate houses with a gradual increase in flats, units and apartments since previous census periods. There are a group of streets with public housing adjacent to the Jamison Centre.

There is a small shopping centre on Lachlan Street in Macquarie that has the well regarded Kinh Do Vietnamese restaurant and the Macquarie Medical Centre. The shopping centre has had a high turnover of other businesses over the years as it attempts fairly unsuccessfully to compete with the much larger and better known Jamison Centre.

The Jamison Centre is the major shopping centre in Macquarie and has popular outdoor Rotary community market every Sunday morning. It contains a number of shops and services, including supermarkets, greengrocer, bakeries, newsagent, banks, medical centre and other facilities.

Adjacent to the Jamison Centre is Big Splash Waterpark, one of Canberra's few public swimming pools and home to Canberra's only outdoor water slide. On the corner of Bindubi Street and Belconnen Way is the Canberra High School established in 1938, with large playing fields between it and the public swimming pool.

Macquarie Primary School on Lachlan Street is a government run school established in 1968 and was the first school in Belconnen.

Like most of Canberra, Macquarie's only scheduled public transport is ACTION buses. Four bus routes run through Macquarie, being bus numbers 10, 705, 749 and 942. As a general rule ACTION bus routes run every 30 to 60 minutes from 7am to 11:30pm.

Macquarie is located in the inner north Canberra district of Belconnen. It is bordered to the north by Belconnen Way, Bindubi Street to the East, Redfern Street to the south and Coulter Drive to the West.

Greywacke from the Ordovician Pittman Formation forms a band down the east of Macquarie. This has been uplifted on the east side of the Deakin Fault. The fault heads in the north east direction in this suburb, whereas the Deakin fault normally heads in the north west direction. A porphyry of Green-grey Dacitic intrusive containing large white feldspar crystals is found under the Jamison Center. Green grey rhyodacite of the Walker Volcanics underlie the center and west of Macquarie.
