I'm organising a group of 40+ persons to visit the National Gallary next month. I would like to give them the option of a pic-nic in one of Canberra's beautiful parks.
I cannot remember if there is one with COVERED tables (in case of rain!!).Can anyone help? Thank you very much.

Commonwealth park near Anzac parade has, it is where the Floriade is held. I think in march, they hold the Canberra festival here, so hopefully it won't be when you are there. Canberra has so many lovely parks, I am sure there would be more with shelters.

Almost anywhere around Lake Burley Griffin is great for a picnic. Try and get a spot somewhere near the water shooting upwards as it is so spectacular. We didnt bother with undercover and just sat on a low wall overlooking the lake. You're more likely to need somewhere in the shade rather than undercover in Feb. Plenty of shade trees around the lake.

Travel Tips for Canberra

Everywhere You Go always Take the Weather with You

by Kakapo2

Talk about the Craziness of the Weather

As Canberra is located amidst mountains, forests and valleys, at an altitude of 571 metres above sea level, it experiences four seasons. Sometimes all four within some days. When I was there in late November/start of December I had steaming hot and ice-cold days, brillant sunshine and days with never-ending rain. Once, while exploring the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve with a colleague, we thought, oh, the sky looked rather dark over Canberra - only to find out that there had been horrible thunderstorms and floodings during the day, trees had been uprooted, branches and debris littered the streets.

A normal summer (but where in the world is the weather still normal?) lasts from December to February and often brings temperatures over 40°C; bushfires are possible. Winter (June to September) is rather cold. The average temperature is about 12°C, with frost during the night.

Whereas snowfalls are common in the mountains around Canberra, in the city itself this happens very rarely.

They offer day-trips to the ski fields of New South Wales from Canberra, to the Snowy Mountains (Thredbo, Perisher Blue/Kosciusko National Park, for about AU$ 130 all inclusive). Mostly alpine skiing but also cross-country options.

Parliament House, National Museums, Science Centre, and the Embassy buildings. Taking an early morning brisk walk through Canberra in winter and losing sensation in my face and fingers from the -5C wind chill. Yes, it does snow in Canberra when the temperatures plunge.

Parliament House

by CandS

Visit Parliament's the home of Australia's Federal Parliament. You can go inside and look around or you can get a free tour. Once when I went I had a broken ankle and they gave me a wheelchair to use for the day...I must admit, it did make it harder to get around but we still managed to see everything.

Phone: 02 62775399

Entry is free. Open daily from 9 am to 5 pm every day except Christmas Day.

Statue of King George V

by Kate-Me

I was expecting to find a lot of elegant statues and monuments in Canberra......but this was the only one I came across.
Most architecture I came across I could only describe as 'ugly' and 'grey stone' and even most of the people live in townhouses and apartments, rather than real houses.
Just further reinforced my idea that Canberra is an odd city. This statue was in the park opposite the old Parliament House, making the Aboriginal Tent Embassy beside it look even more incongruous against the formality of the rest of the precinct.

The centre of Canberra is not...

by Ronald_T

The centre of Canberra is not so big (compared with Sydney) as you know Canberra counts only 311000 inhabitants. It is also known that Canberra is the fastest growing city of Australia with 7.2% people a year. But one thing is a fact; Canberra has an enjoyable commercial centre (also known as Civic), and at least not so busy as the other main city's. It's a great feeling walking in the centre without passing cars and you find nice shops and café's all around the place. Its even difficult to get lost in the centre because you always coming back to the fabulous merry-go-round (see picture) in the middle of the town. Notice the old city centre around the
Norhbourne Avenue (where you also find the Melbourne building) that has fine eateries and shops that are quite tempting as you walk around that place.
