interesting campus with many original buildings

Enjoyed dinner at Boffins in University House. Lovely old building with ponds along the walkway. Well landscaped though easy to get lost driving at night.

Been going here for like 6 years now. Always a pretty place. There's an old game of find an IR student who ISN'T doing Law. If you can do that, legend has it that you'll be made an honourary professor

So many young minds working hard here as it is a research facility mainly. The lovely grounds are nice to walk in.

We drove through the campus. Worth a look to see where a lot of taxpayers $ go. Must be well funded. An interesting mix of historic and contemporary buildings, and grassed areas.

It's a Uni that is in need of a little cuddle, a tad tired and parking can be a nightmare, but hey, you are here for an education so put your head down and bottom up. A little cold in winter so make sure you pack warm clothes!

The ANU campus has to be one of the most pleasant in Australia. It is a short walk from the central Civic area. OK, there is not much to actually 'do' on a uni campus if you are not a student but it can be a good place to just relax for a while. I went there in late 2016... More

The Australian National University (ANU) is in a bushland setting, punctuated by Sullivan's Creek that meanders through the grounds. The grounds are well maintained and if you can catch the gardeners in action they are only too willing to share some of the secrets of their trade. It's a good idea to plan your wanderings in advance so that you... More

ANU is arguably Australia's foremost university. It's grounds are a great place for a walk. The depth and breadth of subjects offered by the university are eye opening.
