South Canberra or the Inner South is a central district of Canberra, the capital city of Australia.

South Canberra is located to the south of Canberra's city centre, on the south bank of Lake Burley Griffin.

It is one of the oldest parts of Canberra, and is built in part in accordance to Walter Burley Griffin's designs. Unlike the later districts in Canberra that are built as separate satellite cities, South Canberra is only separated from North Canberra by Lake Burley Griffin. The two districts combined form the district of Central Canberra and share Civic as their central commercial area.

According to the 2011 Census, South Canberra's population was 24,154.[1]
