About Canberra elsewhere
"The History of Canberra details the development of the city of Canberra from the time before white settlement to Canberra 's planning by the Chicago architect Walter Burley Griffin and subsequent development to the present day."
"Walter Burley Griffin's design for Canberra is now much admired, but when first shown in 1912 it had many critics, who complained that Griffin was not Australian, and that his plan would require expensive surveys by balloon."
"In an international design competition conducted by the Department of Home Affairs, on 1 January 1910 ,the design by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin was chosen for the city, and in 1913 Griffin was appointed Federal Capital Director of Design and Construction and Construction began."
"Canberra is a highly planned city, its primary design conceived by the American architect Walter Burley Griffin and built on the shores of an artificial lake (Lake Burley Griffin)."
"Designing the new capital fell to Chicago landscape architect Walter Burley Griffin, a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright."
"The train arrives in Kingston on the south side of Canberra, which is 15-20 minutes' walk from most of the attractions on the south side of Lake Burley Griffin and a day trip of 5-6 hours is easy to do; to get to Civic and the Canberra CBD on the northern side of the lake, however, will require further transport."
"Canberra has plenty of open spaces, parklands, and monuments, and an awful lot to see and do -- from museum and gallery hopping to ballooning with a champagne glass in your hand or boating on Lake Burley Griffin."

"A different view of the city can be obtained from the summit of Black Mountain ,which looks out over The Australian National University, the Civic Centre and Lake Burley Griffin; with its Captain Cook Memorial, an impressive water spout, that reaches a height of 40 metres."
"The construction of Lake Burley Griffin in central Canberra was started in the early 1960s, based largely on Walter Burley Griffin's original plans."

THE best laksa in the world is to be found at the Dickson Asian Noodle House. It's probably not in any of the guide books but every Asian-food loving person in Canberra will know about it and eat there given the chance.
