  • Curtin is a suburb in Canberra, Australia. Part of the Woden Valley district, its postcode is 2605. Curtin is named after John Curtin, Australian Prime Minister between 1941 and 1945. Its streets are named after state premiers. It is next to the suburbs of Yarralumla, Deakin, Hughes, Lyons and Weston. It is bounded by the Cotter road, Tuggeranong Parkway and Yarra Glen. Curtin shopping centre offers the following services: Coles supermarket, post office, newsagent, bank, real estate agent, TAB, Freshfruit and Vegetables shop and numerous restaurants and eateries. Of note is the Curtin Milk Bar which is the longest running cafe in the area. Its style and format has not changed since the 1970s and is still very popular. Nearby is Curtin Scout Hall. Large areas of Curtin were designed in accordance with the Radburn model of suburban design and public housing. In Australia, the Radburn model was used in the planning of some Canberra suburbs developed in the 1960s, in particular Charnwood, Curtin and Garran, and a small part of Hughes, however these pockets of Radburn design have not seen the same anti-social and crime-related problems that have plagued similar areas in Western and South-Western Sydney, such as Mt Druitt. The Canberra bushfires of 2003 destroyed about 4 Curtin homes. Curtin was a suburb that received a small amount of damage in the fires. The Emergency Services Bureau, based in Curtin, which was the centre of command for the firefighting operation, came under threat itself.
