Ask RiotACT: What is the longest Street in Canberra?

Ask RiotACT

Hi Rioters.

I got asked a question by my 9 year old daughter last night that I could not answer. Does anyone know what the longest Street (not Avenue) in Canberra is?

Thanks.

Barbara Jefferis Street
Charlotte Barton Street

Are the longest ones, both equally as long.

By definition you have the winning answer. Well done.

…….even if it is an Italian word.

This isn’t a direct answer to the question, but the longest continuous stretch of road in the ACT that I’ve found is 104km. (By continuous I mean traveling straight ahead through any intersections.)

If we limit it to streets only then I think the answer is Antill St in Watson.

Hindmarsh Drive.

Cotter Road.

If Avenue is the only caveat, then I’d say the Monaro Highway is the longest street in Canberra. 😉

If you want more visible suburbia on your longest street, then Horse Park Drive, Ginninderra Drive and people from the south can come up with a few suggestions too. Hindmarsh Drive, perhaps?

If you want one with houses facing the streets, then Belconnen Way would be up there.

La Peruse is pretty long too.

I think Canberra Avenue which intersects La Perouse at Griffith would have to be the longest as it runs from Forest to Queanbeyan (I think).
JC, where are you when we need you?

La Peruse is pretty long too.

Bugden Avenue through Gowrie and Fadden has street numbers in the 390s.

The longest on the northside would definitely be Antill St, with the longest in Belconnen being Kerrigan St in my opinion.

Deamer Cres is Richardson is pretty long…

Could be Antill Street, solely based on the suffix of “street”
