Aspen Island

Aspen Island, within Lake Burley Griffin, is a man-made island located in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Aspen Island is located on the south-eastern side of the Central Basin of Lake Burley Griffin, adjacent to Kings Park, Parkes. The island lies within the Canberra ceremonial precinct, called the Parliamentary Triangle. The Australian National Carillon is situated on the island, that is linked to the mainland at Kings Park, by a footbridge which is named after John Douglas Gordon, who played the inaugural recital.

The name of Aspen Island was gazetted on 21 November 1963, and named after the aspen tree, of which some are classified by botanists in the section Populus, of the poplar genus.

Aspen Island is the largest of three islands at the south-eastern end of Central Basin of Lake Burley Griffin. The two smaller adjacent island are unnamed.

Country - Australia

Flag of Australia
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. The population of million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest city is Sydney. The country's other major metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians for about 60,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century. It is documented that Aborigines spoke languages that can be classified into about 250 groups. After the European exploration of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, who named it New Holland, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788, a date which became Australia's national day. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, comprising six states and ten territories.
