The 147m high water fountain welcomes me at the lake.

Around Lake Burley Griffin

Bike paths are everywhere in Canberra. This is one of the paths that lead around Lake Burley Griffin. Bike riding is my new main hobby right now.

image

National Carillon

A bit further away is the Carillon. A gift from the Brits. It can be played by live players and sometimes I stop by and listen for a while. There is a cafe there as well.

A typical wide open sky image from the area here.

image

The trees flower along the lake at the museum and gallery district.

image

I usually stop here at this cafe. There are not many pit stops available on the route.

My bike can be seen leaning on the tree. It is a Gian Yukon.

Giant Australia

Panoramic view of the lakeside not far from the parliament house.

Debris from the flooding carried into the lake is littering on the beach.

image

A meeting of owners of old Jaguar cars at the other side of the lake.

image

A Triatlon competition is happening while I am riding along. They switched to their bikes here and I felt like a snake.

image

Scrivener Dam

The dam is spilling after all the rain we had recently.

image

Ok, now the dam is spilling.

We had a lot of rain. For the year it is already twice as much as average and for december it is 5 times the average.

image

Further down the floodway.

image

Black swans

A common sight on the lake. At this spot people seem to feed them. So there is a lot of them.

image

An ugly dug or is it a swan chicken? - Who knows..

image

They are not really shy.

image

Winter wilderness. 90% of the way is a path like that.

image

The same path. It has been damaged by the heavy rain.

The council tries to block it off but cyclists just push the barrier out of the way all the time.

image

Debris has been swept into the lake by the floodings up stream. Usually there is no debris in the lake.
