Yarralumla is the Canberra residence of the Governor-General of Australia. Very few ordinary citizens get the chance to walk around the gardens so here are a few pictures I took recently.




The view from Lake Burley Griffin.

I knew you weren't ordinary, unless of course you are 'one of the few' :2fun:

I'm just one of the few. :biggrin:

On the occasional Thursday the vessel on the Lake Burley Griffin tour will actually tie up at Yarralumla and the passengers will be given a one-hour tour of the garden. So, I was very lucky that day.

I also have pictures of the red and white dogwood trees planted by Bill & Hillary Clinton when they were guests in 1996.

Australia has had a very interesting collection of Governors-General. :)

There is also a tennis court and a swimming pool.

The G-G has a residence in Sydney as well.


The azaleas were very good this year with the weather NSW had.
