I’m heading into the craziest week of the university semester, but here are some more photos from my two day trip to Canberra.
This is the view across Lake Burley Griffin, which is an artificial lake in the centre of Canberra. It’s named after the architect who designed Canberra. The building in the picture is the National Carillon (which is a huge musical instrument made of bells, apparently).
Trees with beautiful pale green leaves that shed fluffy cotton-like particles are found around a lot of Canberra. I have no idea what the species is, but it adds to the greenness that characterises the city.
We stop by the National Art Gallery to view their collection.
There’s a sculpture of pears sitting outside.
And some Pantone chairs available in their gift store.
The drive back shows us some beautiful scenery of rolling clouds and hills and wind farms.
And this is the view from the McDonald’s at Golbourn on our way back. Lots of open fields. There was a giant Merino sheep here too.
