Florey


Florey is a residential suburb of the Belconnen district of Canberra, located within the Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Florey was gazetted on 5 August 1975 and most houses were constructed in the mid-1980’s. A minor industrial area was located in the suburb prior to residential development.

The suburb itself is named after Howard Florey, Baron Florey, who shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 for his role in the extraction of penicillin. The streets of Florey are named after Australian scientists.
