Captain Cook Memorial Water Jet

Lake Burley Griffin
Canberra, ACT 2600

Mo to Su from 11:00 AM to 02:00 PM

Commemorating Captain Cook's discovery of the east coast of Australia in 1770, the Memorial Jet is one of Canberra's most visible attractions. It was inaugurated by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, on the bicentenary of Captain Cook's voyage in HMS Beagle. The best vantage point is Regatta Point, but for a closer view hire a paddle boat. However, with about 6 tonnes of water in the air at any one moment and with the jet reaching a height of 147 meters (482 feet), this close up could be a little scary despite the fabulous photo opportunity!
