View Full Version : Whats good to shoot (photographically speaking) in Canberra?

07-08-2017, 9:31pm
Before I get the black helicopters overhead thinking I'm after the politicians.....

My wife and I have got a long weekend in Canberra coming up, and while I've been there on business a few times this trip I have some free time and intend to take my camera.

So what can people recommend to take images of? I'm mostly looking for architecture, landmarks, things that I can have a good time looking at and trying to find an original and quirky view of.

So any ideas?

the national museum, parliment house, several buildings in the A.N.U (just drive around and you will find them)
high court, national gallery ( plenty of sculptures around the grounds). the carrilion , war memorial

don't forget to go up on top of mount Ainslie https://visitcanberra.com.au/attractions/56b23b003ed14ca745317ace/mount-ainslie-lookout

Apparently also great at sunrise and sunset...

in the A.N.U look for the john curtin school of medical research, it's on Garren road where it meets ward street
there is also a building called 'the shine dome' , it is next to the Australian academy of science on Mc'avoy circuit in the A.N.U
telstra tower on top of black mountain will give you a 360 scenic view of Canberra

Well I had a nice couple of days sightseeing around Canberra, pity about the weather....

A couple of the first ones through the processing cycle, no prizes for guessing where the first one was taken...

They don't show up for me ether, and I posted them! Lets try that again...

Hmm, I'd uploaded them to my album here, which mysteriously appears to be empty today. Anyone know if there is a site issue or have i done something wrong? Try this
