Oaks Estate


Oaks Estate is an urban village situated immediately on the northern side of the NSW-ACT border abutting the township of Queanbeyan in south-eastern New South Wales, Australia. The estate covers an area of approximately 40 hectares and is bound by the Molonglo River to the north, the Queanbeyan River to the east, ‘The Oaks’ to the west, and the Queanbeyan-Cooma railway to the south.

The village is located 12 kilometres from the centre of Canberra. The village is also noteworthy as the nucleus of Queanbeyan’s industrial development during the second half of the 19th century. Oaks Estate takes its name from ‘The Oaks’, which was part of Duntroon, Robert Campbell’s farming estate. This makes Oaks Estate one of only a few place names in the ACT with significant connections to early colonial times.
