Lake Burley Griffin
Canberra's epic lake offers outdoor activities aplenty — and excellent sunset views.
April 22, 2021
Lake Burley Griffin is the glistening centrepiece of Canberra. It's a popular spot for locals and tourists alike for rowing, sailing, paddleboating, kayaking — or any other water sports you can think of — as well as walking and riding around it.
With the introduction of e-scooters in the city, you can now hire an electronic scooter from the Canberra and Region Visitors Centre to zoom around the water's edge, enjoy the fresh air and take in the sights of the lake. Hire costs $25 for two hours or $35 for four. There are also plenty of lakeside eateries to refuel at along the way, including The National Museum of Australia's Museum Cafe and Snapper on the Lake.
