This slide shows the sixth of six sections of the painting titled Cycloramic View of Canberra Capital Site, View Looking from Camp Hill, created by Robert Charles Coulter on 2 January 1911.

Areas shown in this slide are Mount Campbell, which is indicated as being 3,096 feet high, and Mount Mugga Mugga, which is 2,662 feet high.

Walter Scott Griffiths included these images in his presentation to demonstrate the natural beauty of the area but also to show that a lot of excavation would be needed to create Walter Burley Griffin’s design for Canberra, because it was such an undulating landscape.
