Macquarie is a suburb of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Streets in Macquarie are named after contemporaries of Governor Macquarie.

There is a small shopping centre on Lachlan Street in Macquarie that has the well regarded Kinh Do Vietnamese restaurant and the Macquarie Medical Centre. The shopping centre has had a high turnover of other businesses over the years as it attempts fairly unsuccessfully to compete with the much larger and better known Jamison Centre. (Source: Wiki)
