Lake Ginninderra and Its Inhabitants

by Rosemarie John on May 27, 2014

It was a cool evening when we decided to take a stroll around Lake Ginninderra. A beautiful man-made lake that sits adjacent to the Belconnen Town Centre. Her beauty is spread across a surface area of 1.05 square kilometres and is home to Black Swans, ducks, Moorhens and many more.

As we walked through canopied walkways we couldn’t help but stare out into the beauty that was right behind our apartment.

The high sunlit clouds drifted across a clear blue sky.  The sun began to set slowly and the water glistened in orange hues. The air smelt crisp and fresh. Flocks of birds flew by as they returned home for the day. The flight call of Canberra’s bird life was loud and clear. This was home. Our home. We felt a sense of peace engulf us.

As the sun set, the few thin strips of clouds on the horizon turned to shimmering gold. Our plan to walk around the entire lake had failed as we were enticed by the bird life that we kept encountering. Sadly, we did not see any Gang-Gang Cockatoos which I have been dying to photograph. Here are some pictures that we took along the way…
