About Westbourne Legal


The name Westbourne was inspired by Westbourne Woods which was established by Thomas Weston as an experimental planting area in 1913 and covered 120 hectares (300 acres). The name of the woods come from Walter Burley Griffin's original name for the area, Westbourne.


Westbourne Legal continues the tradition as a local and trusted legal advisor.  We have been representing the people of Yarralumla, the greater inner south and Canberra generally for over 20 years.  Sure there have been a couple of name changes and an ownership change but what has not changed is that we are local.

At Westbourne, we are with you on your legal journey.  We aim to take the legal stress out of your engagement with us.  If we may be bold, you have the passion; so let us do the worrying for you; let us protect your interests.
