“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

As always, Lake burley griffin is the centrepoint and a delight to walk, ride or Segway around. Just don't go for a swim!

“Beautiful area for picnics, bike rides, walks etc”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

This is a very good sized urban lake with lovely pathways to walk or ride along. Some days there are kayaks, bikes, even Segways, to rent! There are coffee shops along it or very close by. It's a good place to spot swans, ducks, Cormorants, etc. There are many parks branching off the main path that circles most of the lake. A lot to see or do depending how long you want to spend there! It's especially beautiful along there in Autumn when the tree leaves turn colour.

“Boring, no powered boats allowed, no restaurants or cafes on lake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

The place is boring and has no facilities around the lake. The local government do not allow motorised boats.
