Water Jet Fountain, Canberra by 


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.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
