As a child travelling to Canberra, I was always fascinated by this jet fountain. Now every time I visit Canberra I still look out for it, hoping that it has been switched on.
The James Cook Memorial Jet Fountain is a dramatic Canberra landmark. The high powered fountain which propels a water column up to a height of almost 150 m, is located in the Central Basin of Lake Burley Griffin.
The fountain is based on the Jet d’eau in Geneva.
