Dickson (postcode: 2602) is a suburb in the Inner North of Canberra, Australia.
It is named after Sir James Dickson (18321901) who was a Queensland advocate of
Australian Federation and one of the founders of the Australian Constitution.
There is no specific theme for street names.
Between 1926 and 1928, a small runway called Northbourne Aviation Ground
was located where the Dickson Library and playing fields are now.
This was Canberra's original airport. Dickson was gazetted on 28 September 1928,
but the suburb was not settled until the 1960s.
The suburb is characterised by leafy streets, detached single dwelling houses,
and double story duplex townhouses.
The suburb is bounded by Northbourne Ave, Antill St, Phillip Ave, Majura Ave, Limestone Ave
and Wakefield Ave.
The suburb contains the Dickson Centre, a significant commercial centre in Canberras Inner North
containing the Woolworths Supermarkets outlet with the greatest turnover in Australia.
The centre contains an ambulance station, office buildings, many shops and
the Dickson Baptist Church.
