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.

Canberra like Brisbane is one of the city that I used to hear that it’s a boring city. When I heard that comment, most likely I am curious why people used to say that. As I knew that Canberra is the city where the central government of Australia is located and chosen to resolve the rivalry of Sydney and Melbourne for being capital city. I went there for a day tour and traveled around 3 hours or more from Sydney I never expected that I will find a city in far flat area. As I saw the metropolis city from a distance I still felt amaze that you will find a community out of nowhere. Photo captured last June 2013. In the photo, three significant structures are visible all in the middle: Parliament House (top most building with green roof), Old Parliament House (white building) and Australian War Memorial (with dome roof at the bottom).
