“Beautiful and tranquil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

On my recent trip to Canberra I stayed in a hotel close to the Lake.
The Lake was absolutely gorgeous and and ideal place just to sit around and relax and enjoy the natural beauty. You can hire bikes and take a bike ride around the lake if you feel energetic.

“The Lake”

Always a pleasant place to walk and to watch the water birds. There are plenty of paths as well as lawns for those who enjoy a walk.

Walked several times around the lake.....beautiful views, alongside joggers and strollers. Well paved paths that allow for comfortable space between joggers and walkers.
