Sir Robert MenziesPrint Page
A walk commemorates former Prime Minister, Sir Robert Menzies.
The walk recognises his commitment to the development of Australia’s national capital to initiate the ‘ideal city’ as originally conceived by Canberra’s winning designers, Walter Burley and Marion Mahoney Griffin. By creating the NCDC in 1957, Menzies set in place the legislation and funding to ensure the growth of modern Canberra.
The walk on the foreshores of Lake Burley Griffin connects both bridges and stretching across Commonwealth Park and Kings Park.
