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.
