If there's one thing the travel agent won't tell you that is a must-do in Canberra it's going for an early morning walk in springtime beside the lake. It is truly one of the most enjoyable things to do in Australia.
The budding cherry and apple blossoms, interspersed with golden wattle to a backdrop of wonderful buildings set amongst the trees makes for an uplifting experience, as well as a healthy one. Fortunately, Canberrans aren't oblivious to the delights of such an activity and you will undoubtedly run across a few during your stroll. It's all part of the experience.
