  Carillion by night

Favorite thing: This is a standout on the northern side of the lake, right next to one of the bridges. There's a walkway (here lit up on the left) that takes you out to the bells and a delightful, if small island behind it.
A gift from the British government on Canberra's 50th anniversary, the Carillion houses 53 bronze bells and is part of the scenic backdrop to Lake Burley Griffin.
