This breathtaking long exposure shot of Canberra’s National Carillon was taken just after a stunning sunset by @ryanferdinandphotos.  The Carillon is a striking 50-metre tall architectural landmark and musical instrument gifted by the British Government to the people of Australia in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Capital. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

“Dawn of the dragon boat.” We love this photo by Instagrammer @cecil1958 of dragon boaters out and about on Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. The lake is popular with locals and visitors alike – explore its shores by walking, running or riding around it or get out on the water for a different perspective. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Walking, cycling or segwaying around the lake’s perimeter is all very well if you want to stay on dry land, but to truly experience Lake Burley Griffin, get waterborne. Hire a canoe or kayak and paddle around the lake to explore more of the area and witness beautiful moments like this sunset captured by Instagrammer @carolelvin. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Instagrammer @carolelvin photographed this graceful swan soaking up the last rays of sunlight near Commonwealth Park.

“Lovely spot for a morning walk.” Instagrammer @traceys.photography recently took part in a popular local pastime of walking the bridge-to-bridge loop around Lake Burley Griffin. The five-kilometre loop between the Kings Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue bridges is surrounded by galleries and museums, parks, and walking and cycling paths. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother
