This jet is an icon of Canberra. it's visible from a large area of Canberra and can be seen for miles. The walk around is lovely, but the calming mist as it settles across the lake on a hot day is something great to see!
You can park (limited spaces) right next to it, off Barrine Drive, and walk/cycle/scoot or run around the lake, but make sure to stop, take a photo of the jet and marvel at the engineering
