Embassies, Canberra: 12 reviews and 18 photos
If you have visited the High Commissions I have listed above, you could not fail to have noticed the extensive buildings and grounds of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China, immediately across the way. This is an excellent example of building in the national style.
When I took the photos there was little visible security, apart from a large steel fence and closed gate, but I would expect that no nonsense would be tolerated! Outside was a very visible ongoing protest by Falung Gung members, on both sides of the road, and a steady stream of (apparently) chinese visitors who were ignoring the protest and frantically taking photos of each other outside their Embassy.
For a view inside the Embassy, there is a tip in the "Off the Beaten Path" section, also a travelogue of photos.
Address: Coronation Dve, Yarralumla
Directions: Heading down Commonwealth Ave, turn R at the last set of lights before New Parl't House, then first left into Forster Ave, turn your vehicle and park on the Chinese Embassy side of the street. Parking is prohibited in Coronation Drive outside the embassy.
