  • From Mount Ainslie you'll get a spectacular view of Canberra. We drove to the top but we've heard that the walk is also a great way to experience the peak. Apart from the great view, there are a few benches for lunch and a van selling drinks and ice creams.

  • It's took around 3 hours to get there from Sydney. Beautiful road to drive .Went for a short visit like 2 to 3 days. Done Camping. Lot's of Halal Food Options there, But less than Sydney. It's very Hot here. Lot's of historical place and less traffic than Sydney. Good for camping and quality time :)

  • Very beautiful view point with lots of parking spots. Nice view of sunset. Just missing public toilets!

  • Awesome view and plenty of space. Great place to visit, especially at night as the lights look amazing.
