We only did the quick central look, referred to as the 'bridge to bridge'. Paved all the way around and easy, flat path which is suited to all regardless of whether walking, running or cycling. Other than some construction work at the northern end of...More

Just a great place to walk around and enjoy some winter sunshine when you can. Highly recommended, but do carry some water with you as there are not a lot of kiosks etc to stop and take a drink

We always to a cycling tour or the lake when we visit. We always have to wear several layers but the invigorating sunshine and crisp air make this a wonderful winter Canberra experience. Hot chocolates and snacks available along the way or pack your own.

I have lived in Canberra for 55 years and Lake Burley Griffin never fails to amaze me. On a beautiful frosty morning with the mist hanging over it, it looks amazing. When the yachts come out to sail they look very majestic.

Rug up and make the effort to have a walk round parts of this beautiful man made lake. Well worth it. The two bridge walk is great.
