Capital Country, Truffles & Bettongs

Five cyclists on top of Mt Pleasant admire the view of Canberra. The Royal Australian Artillery Memorial consists of a stone parapet with concrete panels recording the campaigns in which the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery took part and an obelisk flanked by two cannons. Some buildings of the Russell Offices Defence complex are visible below the left-hand cannon. Lake Burley Griffin Central Basin, the Australian-American War Memorial, Canberra City buildings, and the Black Mountain Tower (Telstra Tower) are also visible.
