Suburb Overview

Spence is a suburb in the Belconnen district of Canberra. The postcode is 2615. The suburb is named after William Spence, one of the founders of the Australian Workers' Union and later a member of the first Australian House of Representatives. It was gazetted on 2 November 1972. Streets are named after trade unionists.

It is next to the suburbs of Fraser, Melba and Evatt. Nearby is a CSIRO property. The suburb is to the south of Owen Dixon Drive and Kuringa Drive and also bounded by Alpen Street and Copland Drive.

The local primary school, Spence Primary School, was established in 1977. It later merged with Melba Primary School to become Mount Rogers Community School

The former school buildings now house a number of community based organisations including the Mount Rogers Community Church. A donation only cafe called "Coffee Corner" is run by the church.

Spence has a neighbourhood oval, bordering Clarey Crescent, which has been in great disrepair since the drought of 2002 / 2003. The other area of bush and open space is the water tower in the northwest of the suburb. The "tower" is built into a hill with only a small portion showing.

The local shopping centre has a medical centre, butcher, hairdresser, baker, chemist and supermarket, along with a service centre including a petrol station, mechanic and Auto Electrics. Another local supermarket, known as the Spence/Evatt Shops, is located on Copland Drive. Next to it is the Tongan Community Centre, rebuilt in 2007 after it burned down earlier in that year. 2012 saw the closing of the supermarket, mechanics workshop and auto electrician replaced with a 7/11 outlet.

Silurian age Hawkins Volcanics green-grey dacite and quartz andesite are in the center and west of Spence. A green grey dacitic porphyry intrusive rock with white feldspar crystals is in the southeast of the suburb. There is a Hawkins Volcanics shale lens patch in the south central part.
