Sailing on Lake Burley Griffin

Lake Burley Griffin divides the city centre of Canberra from the Parliamentary Triangle. It was created by damming the Molonglo River. Although it is named after him, what was built was not the lake Walter Burley Griffin had designed, but it is still the centre piece of Canberra's landscape.

These photos were taken on Lake Ginninderra, which was Canberra's second man-made lake. Simon used to sail on Lake Burley Griffin in the 1970's, before the new lake was built, but that was in the day of film cameras. We only have one photo of that and it's a bit of a blurry mess.
