Lake Burley Griffith

Canberra was designed in 1912 by Burley Griffith, an American architect. An important feature of its design is a lake named after him.

The lake is used by a few small charter cruise vessels, but recreational power boats are prohibited. This photo shows yachts from the Canberra Yacht Club competing last Sunday.

The tree lined shore makes for very pleasant walking and cycling.

I'm enjoying the trip to Canberra with you, Gordon. Be careful on the road!
