Instagrammer @sidepony1 loves cherry blossoms almost as much as we do! She found this patch of trees in Canberra’s Nara Peace Park that must've had just the right amount of sun to bloom; “Gorgeous and peaceful.” #visitcanberra

MUST DO EXPERIENCE 1: There’s no better way to fully appreciate Canberra’s charm than from the comfort of a hot air balloon. Equal parts exhilarating and relaxing, a balloon ride is one of the best ways to see this remarkable planned city and its changing carpet of seasonal colours. Take off with the sunrise and drift gently with the wind. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city’s architectural wonders and design, and finish with a champagne celebration at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra. What better…

This image was taken at the National Arboretum on the first morning of the 9 day Canberra Balloon Spectacular. user captured perfect start to the festival when some light winds and about 40 balloons all took
