This globe shows us how Captain Cook made his voyage until he found Australia and New Zealand some two hundreds years ago, interesting.

This sculpture clearly shows the extent of James Cook's voyages and what an amazing feat it was for the time. A beautiful location right on the lakefront, best place to view the fountain.

It is nice for children to be able to have hands on experiences with our history. It is in a lovely location and nice spot to rest and look at our iconic buildings across the lake

That is one more thing you must see if you are nearby the lake, I did a tour by bike and it was really amazing, the memorial is one of the other great things that you see doing the same.

Canberra has many wonderful vistas and Regatta Point is a good place to wander, sit or enjoy things like Skyfire. Easy walking paths and great views to the National Library.
