Beneath the surface

1 - 10 March

Have you ever wondered what lies beneath the surface of Lake Burley Griffin? Come and explore the aural underwater environment Beneath the Surface.

This immersive soundscape is comprised of hydrophone (underwater microphone) recordings from Lake Burley Griffin, taking you on a journey from near where the Molonglo River and Jerrabomberra Wetlands flow into the Lake right through to Scrivener Dam.

Lake Burley Griffin has been the centrepiece of Canberra since the 1960’s. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the scenic body of water, and undertake a variety of activities on and around the lake. However very few people get to explore beneath the surface.
