Come to the edge of Lake Burley Griffin in Kings Park this Valentines Day to be serenaded with exquisite love songs played on the National Carillon.

According to National Capital Authority Lead Carillonist, Lyn Fuller 'the shores of the Lake are the perfect place to spend Valentines Day, picnicking in the late summer twilight and listening to the romantic bells of the National Carillon.

This Saturday 14 February 2015, bring a rug, a picnic and that special someone down to the Lake. Make sure to be nearby Aspen Island to hear the bells play between 7pm until 8pm.

'Aspen Island, Kings Park is a naturally romantic setting, evidenced by the many couples who have exchanged their wedding vows on the island accompanied by the sound of the bells.

'The melodic bells of the carillon, tranquil warmth as the sun sets over Lake Burley Griffin and the company of a special person - its no wonder so many people look forward to this event each year Ms Fuller said.

Located in Lake Burley Griffin, Aspen Island is home to the National Carillon – a gift to the people of Australia from the British Government to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Capital.
