The Precinct

Governor Place is a mixed-use precinct comprised of luxurious apartment living and a fully self-contained retail destination that will spring to life in three stages.

An extraordinary juxtaposition, Governor Place will be that rare combination of relaxed living in a district that’s fast becoming one of Canberra’s most exciting locations.

Everywhere you turn you’ll find recognisable landmarks within walking distance – the National Portrait Gallery, the National Library of Australia, Canberra Glassworks and the National Carillion bell tower all sit within 2 km of the precinct, while the Australian National University and the National Museum of Australia are just a short 3.5 km away.

The precinct’s close proximity to the Parliamentary Triangle provides the perfect repose from the hustle and bustle of the CBD, while the immediate surroundings give you effortless convenience to everything you could want. Shops, bars, restaurants and cafés, interlaced with tall, leafy trees, provide a peaceful environment for working or relaxing.

Metres away, Lake Burley Griffin makes for the ideal picnic location, while for the more active, the Barton Tennis Club, Manuka Pool, and the health spas at the nearby Realm precinct provide the perfect opportunities for leisure.


From Governor Place, almost everything you need is within a short walking distance.

Whether it’s a morning coffee on your way to work, a lazy Sunday brunch with friends, a romantic dinner for two, or a Friday night drink with your colleagues, you’ll never have to travel far.

As well as restaurants, bars and cafes, you’ll find childcare facilities throughout Barton,

Forrest and Kingston, health clubs and pools at the nearby Hotel Realm and Burbury Hotel, and a plethora of hotel accommodation – all just a stone’s throw away.

What’s more, you’ll have easy access to bus routes and bike paths, superior connectivity to major arterial roads from Canberra’s North and South, and an airport that’s just 10 minutes away by taxi.

Governor Place brings together two of the most esteemed and reputable developers in the country. They share a vision – for innovation, quality and excellence in design. It’s a vision that holds true in every project across each of their property portfolios – including Governor Place.

Over the last 25 years, Morris Property Group has earned a reputation for insightful development and an unwavering commitment to quality. They've brought to life more than 5000 residential apartments – across a number of landmark projects in Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Some of those projects include Kingston Place, Glebe Park Residences, and Habitat Apartments in Canberra, Sierra Grand in Broadbeach, and The Aurora – an award-winning residential building in Brisbane that's been named the tallest in the city.

Now they turn their expertise to 44 & 46 Macquarie Street; a project that will be delivered by Morris Property Group's in-house construction team, Morris Construction Corporation. This highly qualified team will build and commission the apartments to Morris Property Group's stringent quality assurance requirements – ensuring the project is completed on time and in accordance with Morris Property Group's Delivery Promise.

One of the largest multi-unit development and construction companies in the ACT, Doma brings financial strength to the table – with a property portfolio that holds some of the best known residential, commercial and hotel developments in the city. Having successfully completed the Realm Precinct – including the 5-star Hotel Realm, Burbury Hotel, Bridge Point Residences and Dockside on Kingston Harbour – the Doma Group's portfolio is an enviable one.
