Suburb Overview

Turner is a leafy early Canberra suburb, close to Canberra City and the Australian National University.

Turner is named after Sir George Turner, a Federalist, legislator and one of the founders of the Australian Constitution. He was a Premier of Victoria, and later Federal Treasurer under prime ministers Barton, Deakin and Reid. Streets in Turner are mostly named after writers, legislators and pioneers.

Turner was developed in the 1940s and 1950s. It was one of the last suburbs developed with the garden city theme of super-wide nature strips. In fact it is said that Turner represents the pinnacle of spacious garden city design with wide 12 yard nature strips with generously wide roads that give a more spacious feel than older suburbs such as Reid or Braddon, and more consistently wide nature strips and larger parks compared to slightly later suburbs like O'Connor.

Turner, though a small suburb, can be divided into three logical areas

David Street which forms Turner's northern boundary is designed to line up with Black Mountain in one direction and Mount Majura in the other direction. This provides an impressive vista in either direction whilst driving this street. Greenway Street also provides impressive vistas to Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain.

Original block sizes were generous in Turner, ranging from around 800 m 2 to 1400 m 2, with a couple even reaching 1600 m 2. 900

Over the years very few if any houses remain in their original unextended state. Floor plans of the original government designed and built houses can be obtained from the local planning authorities. Many houses have been replaced by multi-story unit developments. The scale of redevelopment post-2000 has been significant - population in the suburb has grown from 1852 people in 2001 to 3010 in 2006.

A number of artifacts of the original design of Turner can still be seen. Firstly, as is typical for Canberra, powerlines are behind the houses so as not to interfere with street trees. Street lamps are low and designed for pedestrians. Several different designs of lamp were installed originally, and examples of each can be still be seen;however, unfortunately, the replacement of lamps has not been historically sensitive. Some streets have footpaths with the house numbers imprinted on the concrete and red fire hydrants can be seen in some areas. Because the suburb's construction was interrupted by the war, various ideas can be seen in the layout of footpaths. For example in the southern areas, footpaths cut off the diagonal of the block. In McKay Gardens it has service lanes as might be found in Balmain in Sydney.

Turner has an excellent combined Special-Education and Mainstream Public school situated between David, Hartley and Condamine Streets, with a combined Pre-school. There are also a number of child-care centres

It also has a tennis club and lawn bowls club and several ethnic clubs, a French association and Polish club and Croatian club. There was a police youth club on Watson Street.
