We love Mount Ainslie lookout. We always take any visitors to Canberra there - so they can see the beautiful views over Canberra.
Also - you can see Walter Burley-Griffin's design plan for Canberra!
The absolute symmetry of the War Memorial, Old & New Parliament Houses - is something that you can really appreciate from this view.
My only slight negative - is that a few bigger trees need trimming as they are blocking the view - I think this is a common issue with lookouts in Canberra - they put the lookout there, and then didn't think about what they were planting under the lookout. Anyway the view is still amazing!
