Except perhaps for going to the obs deck at the Telstra tower Mt Ainslie has the best views in town. Watch out of Kangaroos on the drive up - I mean literally, watch out, or you might have nasty accident.

If you want an excellent view of Canberra then this spot will give it to you. You need transport to get there or a good pair of walkers to get up the road. If your fortunate to be there at a time when there is no one else around then it's a pleasant spot to sit and just get lost in the breath taking views of the Capitol.

As a professional photographer I have been up here many times. Love the view and this should be high on your list of places to see in Canberra.

We visited the Black Mountain lookout/tower before coming to Mt Ainslie which we thought was a better view - and it's free. I admit there's no cafe but that wasn't a problem. We had a wonderful view of the city, mountains etc complete with approaching thunderstorm. Loved it!

You can see how Burley Griffin designed the city from up here, visitors to Canberra should not miss this lookout.
