We would highly recommend going for a stroll around the lake. Lots of great scenery!

Daily sightseeing tour is the best way to introduce you to Canberra and her monuments, museums and political battlegrounds. With an informative commentary and experienced crew, it’s a great way to see the sights. Duration: 2 Hours $20.00

It's a lovely walk around the lake. You can park at the National Gallery.

Do as the locals do and spend an hour walking the ‘bridge to bridge’ path around Lake Burley Griffin, stopping for a coffee and sightseeing along the way.
