The Study Area

The study area is located at the intersection of Yarralumla and West Deakin, and includes both Commonwealth and Territory land and infrastructure. The study area comprises approximately 60 hectares.
The location provides an important connection between the Central National Area, the 1960/70's planning pattern of the Woden Valley and a new land release at Molonglo west along the Cotter Road. Adelaide Avenue is a major axis with Parliament House, and the Dunrossil Drive entrance to the Governor General’s official residence is accessed through this ‘intersection’.
The study area includes a significant heritage item, the Canberra Brickworks. The Brickworks was Canberra's first factory operating between 1913 and 1976, and today provides a reminder of Canberra's industrial and social history. A number of significant Canberran landmarks are located adjacent to the study area, including the National Mint, the Governor General's residence and Lake Burley Griffin.
