canberra aloft

I am one of those people who have never really found our nation’s capital, Canberra, to be particularly beautiful, pretty, or even fun to visit. Perhaps this is a side-effect from having spent too much time working there, and not enough actually enjoying what was around me. Who knows.

When we stumbled across this beautiful web-based flyover of Canberra (a screen-grab of which you can see above), we were spellbound. Absolutely left lost for words. Some of the scenery is just breathtaking, and the combination of stunning imagery and complementary music makes for a wonderful experience.

Then, we dug a little deeper, and it seems as if LensAloft, the firm behind this experience, have actually done quite a number more of these which you can experience. We’ve set out some of the best ones below. Our advice is to open them full screen, and pan around. They work well on both desktop and mobile

We take absolutely no credit for these; we’re just showcasing some of this amazing content we found.

If you like what you’ve seen, be sure to give LensAloft some feedback; you can reach them on Twitter at @lensaloft and We love their work showcasing our beautiful country… as well as some overseas places that apparently aren’t too bad either (kidding; Grand Canyon is great!).

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
