New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.

Beijing Garden - blossoms & BBQ's
The Beijing Garden is located at Lotus Bay on Lake Burley Griffin, adjacent to Nara Park and Lennox Gardens.
Completed in November 2014, these gardens are a Canberra Centenary gift from the Beijing Municipal Government. A team of Chinese artisans came from China to create the garden's sculptures and pavilion using traditional Chinese stone masonry and methods. They also created the paths, rock gardens and beautiful landscaping using the same methods.
The gardens are designed in the Imperial Garden style of the Qing Dynasty.
Canberra Beijing Garden is a spiritual garden to wander through whilst enjoying the scent of the flowering blossoms. With so many beautiful reserves and parks along Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra Beijing Garden would have to be one of the highlights for us all to enjoy.
Blossoms flowering early before Spring (photos taken in the last days of July!).
