Canberra suburb and street names

I came across an interesting page on ACTPLA’s website where you can search for Canberra suburb and street names and their meanings.

As it says, in 1927 the Canberra National Memorials Committee in a Report to the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia on the Naming of Canberra’s Streets and Suburbs proposed that street names in Canberra’s suburbs follow a theme.

This structure has been followed to this day and is one of the oldest policies in the ACT.
