I t is said that no trip to Canberra is complete without visiting the Capitol complex. It is a collection of architecture that while thoroughly modern, is still able to impart the importance and stature of much older capitols. The complex's most prominent feature is its flag pole. It is 81 meters tall and has become a symbol not only for the government enclave, but for the entire city. It exists as a traditional flagpole suspended above the ground by four converging supports that thrust upward where they meet.

Unless its an optical illusion one cannot assess the view that the Canberra flag pole on Parliament house is over 80 meters tall [that's over 240 ft]! It appears to me to be about 20 - 30 meters. The total height from the ground to pole tip could be 81 meters but it states on web-site "flag pole supported by supports is 81 meters" So take away the supports and what is the pole now? Just pedantically wondering. Thank you.
