Will West Macgregor be Getting a New Name?

By frankie - 9 September 2012 24

I’ve heard rumours that the ACT suburb currently known as “West Macgregor” will be getting a new name. Is this true or not? And if so, what will the new name be? I could have sworn that I read online somewhere (or heard from a friend) that it was going to be renamed ‘Brindabella’, but that might have been someone’s imagination at play. Another opinion was that it was simply going to become Macgregor.

I don’t think there are any other suburbs in the ACT that have ‘North’, ‘South’, ‘East’ or ‘West’ appended to their name, so I can’t see the ACT officially sticking to this name over the long term? It would seem odd.

Thanks for your feedback.

It’s going to be renamed “West Belconnen”.

I’ve read real estate ads referring to O’Connor Heights, to distinguish the desirable homes with ‘elevation’ from the boggy ones down here in the slum areas of O’Connor.

Excuse me while I kill a few frogs.

And the magnificently named Oaks Estate?
