“Love the water jet”

Captain Cook Memorial Water Jet
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I see this all the time but it still excites me. I am really disappointed if I go past and it isn't on because of the high winds. It is quite magical the way it just comes out of the lake. Those with more energy can 'paddle' out and take a closer look and the cruise around the lake is well worth doing too and is very inexpensive.

A a small child, I always begged my parents to take me to see the 'fountain' as I called it. It's great! And, it's a wonderful idea for a memorial for Captain Cook.

The water jet at Lake Burley Griffin blasts a stream of water some 70 metres into the air, between specific times of the day but subject to wind conditions. Well worth being in the vicinity of the water jet, either on the lake foreshores or even on commercial boats which tour the lake itself.

A big water spout on Lake Burley Griffin that usually operates between 10am and 11.45am and between 2pm and 3.45pm. That's really about all you need to know!

Adds a little extra something special to the always lovely lake views.
