    Old Parliament House Gardens

    by globetrott Written Nov 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the Old Parliament House Garden a nice place to relax not far from the new parliament, in the very centre of Canberra. There was a wedding-reception held there in the park while I was there. Canberra is quite a newly built, artificial town but I was still surprised to learn that the so-called "old" Parliamenthouse garden was planted in 1931 and that is no Age at all for a new garden ;-))
    The garden was designed by Rex Hazlewood, who was a man of many interests. He was a professional photographer and while serving in Europe during WW I he started to study English landscapes and parks.
