Title: Marion Mahony Griffin View - Mount Ainslie Lookout to be renamed
Post by: Sir Pompously on April 09, 2013, 04:06:37 pm
Recognition of Marion's contribution to the winning Canberra design will see the lookout at the summit of Mount Ainslie be renamed later in the year to Marion Mahony Griffin View. The inspiration for the renaming of the lookout comes as we celebrate Canberra's 100th birthday, with one particular rendering submitted being "View from the summit of Mount Ainslie". Marion had never visited the site and created an image from topographical maps of the area to create an amazingly accurate scene!

If the summit of Mt Ainslie is being "renamed", then it must have had a previous name.

Anyone aware of what its former name was?
