Australia 20 November: Queanbeyan - Canberra
We started our run today in Queanbeyan, heading towards our final destination Canberra just a hop, step and jump down the road.
Catching up with the runners...
All smiles as the team enters into the heart of Canberra.
Across the Kings Ave. Bridge with Australia's Parliament House, the venue for our closing ceremony on Tuesday, in the background.
We swap the road for the bike path, alongside Lake Burley Griffin, as we run past the National Carillon. The Carillon was a gift from the British government to the people of Australian to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Capital, Canberra. The Carillon has 55 bells each weighing between seven kilograms and six tonnes. It is in regular use, chiming every quarter hour and playing a short tune on the hour along with tours and recitals on many days.
When we reached the capital city of Australia, we had a little time to look around Commonwealth Place with its spanning views of Parliament House, Lake Burley Griffin and the many untouched hills surrounding the capital city.
Canberra is a beautiful city that balances modern living in complete harmony with the natural environment.
The Canberra is a fully functional recreational city with bike paths and bike stands all across the town.

Canberra is replete with well-designed architecture.
Finally, we wanted to see the city from above.
So we visited the Telstra Tower situated ontop of Black Mountain with panoramic views of Canberra and the surrounding countryside.
The Telstra Tower was dedicated as a Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossom, at the conclusion of the 1995 World Harmony Run. Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossoms are there to inspire us all to lead more peaceful lives and to foster in the heart a deepening committment to the dream and blossoming reality of universal harmony.
Fantastic 360 degree views from the top of Telstra Tower, 100m above the city.
Distance: 17 km
