The District of Tuggeranong is one of the original eighteen districts of the Australian Capital Territory used in land administration. The district is subdivided into divisions (suburbs), sections and blocks and is the southernmost town centre of Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The district comprises nineteen suburbs and occupies 117 square kilometres (45 sq mi) to the east of the Murrumbidgee River.
The name Tuggeranong is derived from a Ngunnawal expression meaning “cold place”. From the earliest colonial times, the plain extending south into the centre of the present-day territory was referred to as Tuggeranong.
At the 2016 census, the population of the district was 85,154.
