Excellent Don.  Yes Mount Majura in the background with that belt of radiata pine on the lower slopes was the clue.  The radar tower is just visible.  For the out of town subscriber, Majura at 890m is the highest of the hills within the Canberra bubble, as Canberra’s urban extent is sometimes called.  A couple of entries suggested Cotter Dam but that is more like 17km from the parliament.


The actual spot was a corner of the airport perimeter fence near the 17th tee at Fairbairn golf course.

Looks like Mt Majura in background, so airport security fence.
