Hans and Paul look out over Canberra

We wanted to get a good look at the capital city of Australia, which is where our host family live. They took us up to Black Mountain, which is close to the city centre. On the top of the mountain (compared to the mountains in Wellington it is only a hill, but nevertheless) there is a large communication tower with viewing decks, and is a very popular spot for people to get their bearings of Canberra.
Here we are at the bottom of the tower.
Behind us you can see Lake Burley Griffin, which is a created lake named for the architects of this planned city. Compared to our last city, Wellington, this city is so spread out and flat!
Canberra is known as the Bush Capital, behind us here is a large area of bush, mostly gum trees, and behind that you might be able to see more of the urban and suburban areas of the city.
Behind us here you can see the city centre of Canberra. A beautiful day to enjoy a beautiful view.
