At a well-known and -used BBQ/picnic area, beside Lake Gininderra%, near John Knight Memorial Park%%, off Townsend Place%%%, ACT.
% Ginninderra is the name of the river on which the lake is situated. Ginninderra is an Aboriginal word meaning "sparkling" or "throwing little rays of light". It was also spelt Ginin-ginin-derry and Giningininderra.
%% Named after Senator John Knight who, as Chairman of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on the Australian Capital Territory, played a major role in ensuring the preservation of much of the shores of Lake Ginninderra for public recreation.
%%% William Townsend (1821-1882), Mayor of Adelaide, 1864; arrived in South Australia, 1844; MLA, South Australia, 1857-82; Commissioner of Crown Lands, 1863; Commissioner of Committees, 1876-82; founded Blind, Deaf and Dumb Institute; Mayor, Unley, 1879-81.
On the way home from work, a quick call by the park.
As expected, I parked about 20m from the hash and walked down through the permanent tables/bench seats and BBQ to the water's edge, checking the GPS as I went. The hash spot seemed a little closer to the lake edge than I'd expected from Google Maps. Several pictures were taken, then I left the printed details on the nearest table.
At home, later, I was having trouble with my connection to the net, so the pics are not up, yet.
