New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Spend Christmas Eve by Lake Burley Griffin
The National Carillon is a 50 metre tall spire that sits on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin, in the scenic Kings Park. At the top of the spire, there are 55 bells which weigh between seven kilograms and six tonnes - each one creating their own unique sound. Each Christmas Eve, a Carillonist plays the bells in the tunes of Christmas Carols, so that the community can sit around the lake and enjoy picnics by the water. The musical performance will run for 1 hour between 6:30pm - 7:30pm and include songs such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, White Christmas and Silent Night.
See the National Capital Authority website for the full 1 hour program.
