Top 4 Places Visited in Canberra

Since I finished featuring Canberra City in my site, now I can rank the places that I visited in the city according to my preference or my liking. If you had visited the city, what are your top places in Canberra? And why?

TOP 1 – MOUNT AINSLIE

Mount Ainslie Lookout gave me a chance to see the city at one point, a scenic view that can only be found at the top. And it gave me a chance to see beyond that my eyes can discover if I was at the ground, a viewpoint of the national city of Australia.

TOP 2 – AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL

I looked at Australian War Memorial as the father of all war or peace memorial or shrine of remembrance in Australia, not only because it is the largest structure of all but because the national scope it features about their country’s heroes.

TOP 3 – PARLIAMENT HOUSE

Having a chance to see what’s inside the national government house of Australia and understanding its objective why its open to the public made me understand the way they think how they govern their country and their people.

A very unique on its own in terms of architecture, the museum emphasizes the people and their story in a very enlightening way to show how they are significant in their country.

Mount Ainslie Lookout – A Viewpoint of Canberra

Mountain is one of the best places that I wanted to be. Though I never climb Mount Ainslie and our tour drove directly to the lookout, I still enjoyed the time that our group spent in the lookout. The tour had given me a chance to see the whole city of Canberra from one of the mountains around the city.

From the lookout, I saw how amazingly designed Parliament House both old and current one and the Australian War Memorial. These buildings are straightly aligned to each other even though there’s river or lake between these structures, a beautiful landscape indeed.

From Mount Ainslie, I noticed as well the Telstra Tower in Black Mountain, which another option to visit to see the whole city.

Another scenery to enjoy from the lookout was Lake Burley Griffin or Molonglo River which makes Canberra a nature feel good city.

Looking far beside the city central of Canberra, I got a chance to see nearby mountain ranges that surrounds the city which was a scenic view to enjoy.

Precious Moment In The Mountain (Post#25) : Mount Ainslie

We reached Mount Ainslie Lookout which gave us the birds view of the capital city of Australia. And from the lookout itself, even though Canberra is a flat cit, the center of the city is situated between two mountains, namely Black Mountain and Mount Ainslie. This photo is part of Canberra Day Tour June 2013 Collection.
