Behind the Australian War Memorial located in Canberra, Mount Ainslie rises and on the peak of this mountain is the Mount Ainslie Lookout. This lookout offers a fantastic panoramic view of the capital city of Australia, Canberra. As you lay your eyes upon the landscape of the city from the top of Mount Ainslie, you will see how everything fits together and falls in place in this uniquely designed city. Canberra is also known as the Bush Capital of the world and from this lookout, it will become clear to you why it is called so.
Several displays on Mount Ainslie Lookout showcase the rich historical background of the city as well as the stories of the several individuals who played an important role in the development of the city. Visitors have the option of walking, cycling or driving to the top of the mountain in order to enjoy the fantastic view it has to offer which is particularly great at sunrise and sunset. This mountain is also a habitat for several of the native bird and wildlife species and thus is a paradise for photographers. The lookout is accessible at all times, and entry is absolutely free of cost.
