Big Monks
View from Mt Ainslie

For the most comprehensive guide to walking in Canberra, John Evans is your man for that. Sounds like he’s going through some health issues lately, so hope you get well soon. I’ve never met John but his site is an incredible resource.

Some of the most popular walking posts over time on the site have been:

Rob Roy and Big Monks, Butters Bridge, Cotter Cave, Mugga Mugga and the Mt Majura-Mt Ainslie loop

You can see a full list of the walks here.

Canberra Walks – Palmerville in Autumn

A look at Palmerville in Autumn. Canberra does leaves well. Canberra is renowned for some stunning colours in Autumn, though I must say this particular year has not been outstanding as yet. There are colours around, but still a lot of green in the trees. Driving around I’ve noticed the Palmerville Heritage Park seems to [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Battling Big Monks

Going up Big Monks a more difficult way. I’ve been up Big Monks in the Rob Roy Nature Reserve previously. It’s been one of the most popular posts on the site. I’ve been saying for a long time now it was time to give it another look. I’ve seen other posts saying that it was [&hellip

After a few years I went back to the Rob Roy Nature Reserve. A post I made a few years back about the visit to the Rob Roy are is one of the most popular on the site. It kind of surprises me as in my visits I don’t think I have seen anybody there. [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Gibraltar Peak

Gibraltar Peak is a significant location within Tidbinbilla Nature Park. I have been meaning to do Gibraltar Peak for quite some time now. I’ve spent a little time in Tidbinbilla, but haven’t done any of the significant hills until now. I had been told by a couple of people that it was one of the best [&hellip

I had a mechanic visit down in the industrial area and saw some green area and decided to have an explore.

Canberra Walks – Tuggeranong Hill

Tuggeranong Hill provides great views over the south of Canberra. This is another one of the walks I had photos of stored away. I did this walk in 2016, starting from Calwell. There are quite a few different ways you can access the hill, which is one of the main focal points in the Tuggerangong area. I have seen a few posts recommending to [&hellip

Percival Hill is a small hill near Nicholls. This is one of the walks I did a couple of years ago. Lately I have been looking at some of my older pictures that I haven’t put up and this is one of those posts. I have read a few other reviews of this walk saying that is quite easy, although when I [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Palmerville

Palmerville Heritage Park in Evatt was the place for this walk. Palmerville Heritage Park lies in the remains of what was an early unofficial village in the Limestone Plains area, before the city was even there. There is not much in the way of buildings still there, with the signs showing deterioration of what was there over 100 years ago. There is some very interesting [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Googong Foreshores

The Googong Dam offers quite a wide range of walks in different areas. The Googong Foreshores has a picnic area, boat ramp and is the start for a couple of different walks. While the facilities are quite good, there is very limited signposting. It doesn’t really matter though, as the track is well made. Googong [&hellip
