Work, life and play combine in one vibrant cultural precinct. DKSN signals the rebirth of Dickson, with meticulously-designed one, two and three-bedroom apartments, carefully-curated restaurants and retail, and a state-of-the-art office building.
Doma and Englobo have come together to create a truly integrated space which combines the best of Dickson’s heritage with forward-thinking urban design. Three new buildings anchor a network of share ways, pedestrian lanes and a civic plaza, producing a mixed-use precinct with people at its heart.
Public plazas encourage a sense of community, while laneways invite exploration. Inspired by Melbourne’s eat-streets, DKSN will boast al fresco dining areas brimming with energy and life, and high-quality retail offerings will attract treasure-seekers.
Designed with modern living in mind, all the essential amenities will be at residents’ fingertips—from markets to medical, cafés to childcare, gyms to green spaces. But DKSN is not only about community—it’s about connection.
The site of Canberra’s original airport, Dickson will soon once again be a bustling transport hub. Light rail and Dickson Interchange are at DKSN’s doorstep, linking it effortlessly to the city, northern suburbs and beyond.
DKSN will challenge the way you think about Dickson.

Located just four kilometres north-east of Canberra’s CBD, Dickson’s wide and leafy streets mark it as one of Canberra’s older suburbs. Residents reap the benefits of established infrastructure—a library, large supermarket, clubs, schools, nature reserves, parks, public pool, bars and cafés.
DKSN’s close proximity to the city centre and hotspot of Braddon make it the ideal base for urban adventures—from high street shopping to a cornucopia of food experiences. The University of Canberra, Australian Institute of Sport and GIO Stadium are all within an easy drive; while, to the east, a wealth of nature reserves are begging to be explored.
But there’s plenty to discover without leaving Dickson.
Long enjoying a reputation as the city’s Chinatown, quality Asian eateries jostle for attention—Dickson considered by many the home of Canberra’s best pho and yum cha—but recent entrants to the scene are injecting new energy into the neighbourhood. Highroad—the latest addition to the ONA coffee empire—heads a diverse line up which includes gastropubs, vegetarian cafés, all-day diners and artisanal pizza.
During summer, Dickson Aquatic Centre offers a shady oasis with three heated pools and barbeque and picnic areas, while community gardens give residents the opportunity to grow organic produce for their home.
From young singles to families and those looking to downsize, Dickson has something for everyone.
