About Forrest

Setting up a residents group for the suburb of Forrest was first discussed publicly at a meeting of residents held at the Italian Cultural Centre on Tuesday the 30th of August 2016.

 

At that time a Steering Committee was elected to establish guidelines, propose membership arrangements and draft rules for the formal establishment and the ongoing operation of a Forrest Residents Group (FRG). 

Forrest (Postcode, 2603) is a suburb of CanberraAustralian Capital TerritoryAustralia. Forrest is named after Sir John Forrest, an explorer, legislatorfederalistpremier of Western Australia, and one of the fathers of the Australian Constitution. Streets in Forrest are named after explorers and governors. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics Forrest is the second most Socio-Economic advantaged location in Australia after the neighbouring suburb of Barton.
