  • Since it was designed purely as a capital of a country I am pleased with it was nicely designed and much pleased with its layout. The facilities spreads around are equally good and well controlled. I love to live in Canberra due to its low density in population.
  • Floriarde wonderful experience took grandchildren they too were fascinated and in awe. The displays were creative and well thought out. A lot of people including myself took the chance to photograph the venue sights . The lake water features due crowds especially the globe. Food prices up market prices not all that suitable for ordinary families. Only thing purchased on way out was an ice cream at regular pricing. The walk was at least near 2km away from where car was parked. But am pleased we saw it. Highly recommend to view .
