Lake Burley Griffin Self-Guided Walking Tour

Walking is one of the best ways to experience your National Capital.

On this self-guided walk, explore the landmarks, special places and memorials along the shores of the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin. Take time out to visit the national institutions along the way.

The ornamental Lake Burley Griffin is the centre of the Griffins’ plan for Canberra. It consists of three water basins – formal central basin and the more recreational west and east basins. It was created by damming the Molonglo River with Scrivener Dam. Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies officially inaugurated the lake on 17 October 1964. It is 9kms long and the lake shore is 40.5kms in length.
