2617 Belconnen

The hub of this ACT postcode is Belconnen Town Centre with its cafes, restaurants and shopping precinct. Outside the Town Centre, Kaleen is the largest area and a suburb where all the streets are named after rivers. Water is a metaphor for the postcode which includes wetlands as well as green belts with paths and cycleways. Lake Ginninderra adjoins the Town Centre and its foreshore provides a wealth of public open space. Its parks are most welcome at a time when apartment and high-rise living is the new focus of urban planning in this postcode.
