“the famous man made lake of Canberra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

now over 50 years old so surroundings [mainly nature] mature - has lots of "points" sticking into lake which are good for viewing parts of Canberra and many parts set up for picnics [eg public BBQ's/park benches] - also easy to drive almost all around [few interruptions, eg around Canberra CBD} - but easy to navigate - just look for/keep on narrow roads around the lake - hassle to avoid is unexpectedly being fed into a freeway, but if so, just keep an eye on the lake and head back to one of the smaller roads near it

“Peaceful and photographic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

We drove around LBG took some photos and thought okay we are done here. It probably would have been much more enjoyable had we had time for a tour on the segways!

Nice lake located in the middle of the capital city. You can jog, cycle, walk around the lake & feel the fresh air of Canberra

“After the rain... a real lake again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

What a great setting for so many great national icons. You can walk to many but there is so much else to do that driving is justified unless you have days to spare.

“The centre piece of the national capital”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

The walking and bike riding around the entire lake is wonderful, such beautiful scenery. It is also good for picnics with good facilities provided at different spots around the lake.
