Martyo came across the workers rigging the Canberra Times fountain for light last night and sent in a great set with this note:
had a chat to the guy setting up lights last night – first time every
this fountain has been lit (normally a dull orange color) – will be in-place for about 12 months
barriers come down today and should be full of water – so going to revisit on Saturday night – at-least I got a chance to get under it without water 🙂
The Canberra Times Fountain by Bob Woodward was commissioned by Federal Capital Press in 1976 and installed as a gift to the people of Canberra in 1979. It is a fountain centrepiece. The tube and rods are of fabricated stainless steel. It is 450 cm x 500 cm x 500cm.
