Spring Block I - Canberra

Australia’s capital Canberra is the political centre of the nation and a contested space where national memory of grandeur, achievements and episodes of oppression and failures are on display. State institutions such as the Parliament House and the Royal Australian Mint and public memorials such as Australian War Memorial and the Reconciliation Place narrate the winding narratives of this diverse continent.


Lake Burley Griffin is an integral part of Canberra’s design and is a vital element in the plan for the nation’s capital. The lake consists of the waters of the Molonglo River between Scrivener Dam and the Dairy Road Bridge.
