View from Mount Ainslie Lookout

Mount Ainslie Lookout

For picture-perfect views of Canberra, you can’t go past a visit to Mount Ainslie. Walk, cycle or drive to the lookout and enjoy the impressive scenery, lovely at all times but a particular treat at sunrise and sunset. Take in Lake Burley Griffin and many of Canberra's national attractions, framed by picturesque mountain ranges.
See how Walter Burley Griffin’s vision for the city has been brought to life. A hotspot for photographers, the vista is complemented by the abundance of native birds and wildlife.

Fantastic Views of Canberra

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

A lovely place to spend half an hour absorbing the views. A lovely clear spring morning is a great time to be up there in the clean air. Also a good vantage point for photography.

Good night lights view

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

On a fine night it is a good place to see the lights of Canberra. Some low level pathway lighting might help though on the steps

Looking out over Canberra

Tripadvisor rating Reviewed on

A visit done on the spur of the moment and well worth the short trip if in Canberra. Visited on a quiet Saturday afternoons could enjoy the various vistas available to view.
