Isaacs is a suburb in the Canberra district of Woden.  It is named after Isaac Isaacs, politician, Chief Justice and, from 1931 to 1936, the first Australian born Governor-General. The streets themselves are named after Australian educationalists.  For example, William Wilkins Crescent was named after William Wilkins, educational reformer and administrator during the nineteenth century.  He was also Principal of Fort Street Model School in New South Wales, the first Government school in Australia.

The suburb was gazetted as a Division Name in 1966, but residential housing was not built until the late 1980s. Isaacs lies next to the suburbs of O’Malley, Mawson and Farrer. It is bounded by Yamba Drive and Ngunawal Drive. Located in the suburb are the Canberra Nature Park of Isaacs Ridge and the Long Gully pine plantation.
