Although it takes up less than 40% of the area of the ACT, Canberra is home to 99% of the territory's population. There are seven districts in Canberra: North Canberra (15 suburbs), South Canberra (13 suburbs), Woden Valley (12 suburbs), Belconnen (25 suburbs), Weston Creek (8 suburbs), Tuggeranong (19 suburbs), and Gungahlin (18 suburbs).
Outside of Canberra, there are a few small towns including Tharwa, Naas, Pierces Creek and Cotter. Uriarra is on the western border with New South Wales. Queanbeyan, the closest big town to Canberra, is just outside of the territory, as is the small towns of Royalla and Williamsdale.
