Mount Ainsley belongs to a mountainous mountain range. This mountain is in the southeast of Canberra. It takes a certain amount of time to come here by car. The vegetation on the mountain is very dense and you can see a lot of fun natural scenery. The mountain is built of cement. The surface of the platform is quite comfortable to walk on.

We chose to climb Ainsley Mountain from the war memorial, although you can also drive or bike to see it. Before you really go on the right path, you have to find the starting point of the road. This is a bit difficult because the road signs are not very good. We parked the car in front of the war memorial and walked up. This is a good road, some sections are quite steep. You want to make sure you bring enough water, because there is nothing to replenish along the way. Once and again, we spent nearly an hour and a half, including time to appreciate the scenery and take photos. Canberra is indeed a beautiful and well-planned city.
This should be the last time I have come to Ainsley to watch the sunset. I think of the long winter weekends and come over early after work, sit in the car for an hour and then slowly wait for the sunset. Start to bid farewell to this city. Today, I have finished saying goodbye to my friends. [Mickey Heart]
Mt Ainslie is one of Canberra's three commanding heights (and the Black Mountain Australian TV Tower). It is just north of the war memorial. It is 842 meters high. It is very close and easy to reach. It can be climbed up the mountain and there is a walking path leading to the top of the mountain. From the top of the hill, you can overlook the war museum, the Anzac Memorial Square-the old parliament building, and the panoramic view of the central axis of parliament hill. How to get there: It takes about 30-45 minutes to climb from the north of the war memorial to the top of Ainslie. If you don’t like climbing, you can drive directly to the top. We took a taxi up the mountain from the War Museum. Taxi is about 20 Australian dollars.
Ainsley Hill is a hill on the edge of Canberra, not a high mountain on the top of the hill to get a bird's eye view of Canberra. It is a good place for residents to get together for exercise, and there are many people running in the morning and evening.
