The masterful centrepiece of Canberra, the large and lovely Lake Burley Griffin is an ideal water playground, whether you’re into rowing, sailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding or fishing. Cyclists and walkers are well catered for along the 40km shoreline, and nothing beats a picnic in its numerous parks and gardens.

For those seeking a more leisurely experience, take a cruise, catch a ferry, or simply enjoy the water views from one of the many lake-side cafes and restaurants.
