Explore Canberra's scenic lakes, parks and recreational areas these summer holidays


The summer holidays are the perfect time to explore Canberra’s scenic lakes, parks and recreational areas. From Lake Tuggeranong in the South to Yerrabi Pond in Gungahlin, these spaces offer beautiful scenery and plenty of space to exercise, walk the dog, have a picnic or ride your bike. You might even catch one of Canberra’s breathtaking sunrises or sunsets. 

Before you head out with your pooch make sure you’re up-to-date with recent changes to dog exercise areas including the introduction of new on-leash rules in a number of locations. 

Here’s a comprehensive guide to locations and facilities in Canberra’s parks, reserves and recreational areas and check out our summer holidays video series to see how you can enjoy these beautiful spaces.
