“Nice to walk around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Nice to take one of the many walks or riding paths.
Don't expect a swim as the water contains algae or something.

“Visionary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Looking at old pictures of Canberra, it is just amazing the vision of Walter Burley Griffin and others.
How they could see the future and help be part of it - Just amazing.
Canberra today is a real tribute to them.

“Tranquil place to sit and gaze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The lake is so tranquil in the middle of the town. Just sit and relax and watch the world go by. The fountain is lovely when it is turned on as well.

A great way to see some of the best sights in Canberra. The 5km "Bridge to Bridge" walk/ride/run is relaxing and interestng.
