Looking down Anzac Way to the new Parliament House. This is actually in the Australian Capital Territory, Canberra. The A.C.T. is quite a pretty area, and Canberra is a very beautiful and superbly planned city. However, Canberra is really a compromise. The capital of Australia used to be Melbourne, but (as noted previously) there was a great deal of rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne, and in the end it was decided to create the A.C.T. The city was designed by Walter Burley Griffin, and there is a very attractive man-made lake in the city named after him.
