Charnwood is a suburb in the Belconnen district of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory.

Charnwood's design was based on the Radburn town planning principle. Under this design, houses were to face common parkland, with the suburb's streets servicing garages situated at the rear of the houses. The design failed in its application, however, as home owners built fences around the "park side" of their blocks, effectively screening the houses away from the common parkland. (Source: Wiki)
