Conder is in the Lanyon Valley. It is one of the southernmost suburbs of the city, although the small settlement of Tharwa exists only a short distance further south.

Named after artist Charles Conder, an English-born painter, lithographer and designer who emigrated to Australia and was a key figure in the Heidelberg School, the suburb of Conder extends from the slopes of Tuggeranong Hill to the valley floor. Conder is home to the valley's main services including the Lanyon Market Place, Lanyon High School and one of the four Vikings Sports Clubs in Canberra. The suburb also includes Charles Conder Primary School, a youth centre, child care centre, family services centre and Catholic Primary School. Just like the name of the suburb, the streets of Conder are named after artists, including members of the Heidelberg School and places associated with that school. Among those recognised are Russell Drysdale and Tom Roberts. Major developments in Conder including "Eastern Valley Rise" and "The Landscape" have seen the Lanyon Valley's population grow rapidly.
