Park
“Located to the north-east of central Canberra, within the Canberra Nature Park, Mount Ainslie boasts extraordinary panoramic views of central Canberra, particularly Capital Hill, as well as Black Mountain (another gorgeous lookout, if you’ve got time!) to the West. You’ll find the Mount Ainslie Kokoda summit train, a well-maintained and informatively signposted walking trail behind the Australian War Memorial, to be an excellent and highly educational way to experience the mountain.”

“It's just a short stroll to the Dickson shops, where you can enjoy tasting great Canberra District wines and local platters in the friendly and unexpectedly up-scale Canberra Wine House, hidden away at the back of the Dickson Tradies Club. When you've chosen a bottle you like, you can buy it at cellar door prices, and take it with you to one of Dickson's many great Asian restaurants for a delicious meal. ”
