    Great view
    A fantastic view, woth the drive up the windy road. At the time (7pmish on a Friday night) we went the parking was easy, the lookout uncrowded. If going at night your phone torch is handy as the paths are lit but not well lit.

    Awesome views from Mount Ainslie
    Marvellous views - terrific for photos. Interesting information boards. Refreshments were available from a mobile vendor. Easy drive from the city's main attractions, and convenient, free parking. A must-do Canberra experience - would suggest a visit to the National Capital Exhibition first to fully appreciate the planning behind all you will see.

    Lovely view but attack of the Lady Birds!
    Loads of parking, nice friendly guy with a drinks stand, AWESOME view BUT attack of the lady birds, lol. The vendor had told us they normally come at the start of the year for two months but were running late this year. 1000s of them. At least it wasn’t mosquitoes!

Fantastic view with very little effort and short drive from the city. Definitely worth a look for anyone - probably only need to allow 10-15 minutes tops.

I was glad of coach transport to the lookout rather than having to walk! Once there, a great view of the city and Lake Burley Griffin unfolds from the viewing platform. Foe those using their own transport there is plenty of parking space.
A good way to round off a visit to Canberra.

Visit this place after going to the Parliament! The view of the straight line from top and blue skies is breathtaking. We did not hike. We drove. Next time we hike!!

Rode up to the peak, stayed for about one hour. Magnificent view of Canberra, I recommend going up for a great view, or even a picnic.

This overlook offers a perspective of the layout of Canberra city that is superior to that offered by the Telstra tower due to the fact that it views right down to the War Memorial and Parliament House.

It's a lookout with a great view. You get a great view of the capital and all the Canberra surroundings. There is a fella sell coffee and ice cream at the top. Not sure if he is there all the time.

The road up is very narrow but in good condition once up there the view is spectacular. There is plenty of parking and all the paths are in good condition.
