"Statue of King George V" Canberra Favorite Tip by Kate-Me

Canberra Favorites: 79 reviews and 92 photos


Favorite thing: 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.

Fondest memory: 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.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
