Florey (postcode: 2615) is a residential suburb of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia, in the district of Belconnen. It was gazetted on 5 August, 1975 and most houses were constructed in the mid 1980s. A minor industrial area was located in the suburb prior to residential development.
