Fyshwick is a retail and light industry suburb of Canberra and is located east of the South Canberra district. On Census night 2011, Fyshwick had a population of 38 people.It has many motor vehicle dealers, stores selling home furnishings and hardware, and stores that sell goods wholesale. There are also some fast-food outlets.It was named after Sir Philip Fysh, a Tasmanian politician who assisted in bringing about Australia's Federation. The suffix "wick", from Old English, means "dwelling place"and, by extension, "village" or "district". Its streets are named after Australia's industrial towns and regionsfor example, Mount Isa is represented by Isa Street and Townsville is represented by Townsville Street.It is known for its adult entertainment industry. Fyshwick and Mitchell are the two places in the ACT where strip clubs and brothels may operate legally. Prostitution in the ACT was decriminalised in 1992 but strip clubs and brothels are restricted to those two suburbs.The only railway line into Canberra runs through the middle of Fyshwick dividing the area into halves. Ipswich and Newcastle Streets as well as the Monaro Highway cross the railway line uniting both halves of Fyshwick.The Fyshwick sewage treatment works was built in 1967 to treat waste water that could not easily be pumped to the other side of Canberra. It has been recently converted to use a modern portable pressurised treatment system developed by ACTEW called CRANOS. It is now used to treat industrial waste water, which is then used to water the Duntroon grounds and golf course.
