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 – Gungaderra Grasslands Loop

Gungaderra Grasslands is part of the bushland behind the suburb of Crace. At the moment the grass is growing quite quickly. I have previously written about Gungaderra Grasslands, it would have been one of the first Canberra Walks posts that I made.  Things have definitely changed since this map was made, with the area of [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Jerrabomberra Wetlands – Callum Brae Nature Reserve

This walk took me along Jerrabomberra Creek and eventually into the Callum Brae Nature Reserve near Narrabundah. We had our car booked in for service in Fyshwick, so during the hours it was going to take I explored the surrounding areas. In the end I covered about 20km, which is probably more than I was [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Burnt Stump Hill

Burnt Stump Hill is part of the Gooroorrayoo Nature Reserve near Mulligans Flat, Canberra. We’ve been spending a lot of time going to various parks around Canberra during the school holidays. Nico’s request was to go to the Joey Park in Throsby, so I suggested we do a walk in the area. Among a lot [&hellip

The Ground to Sky Walk can be accessed through the streets of Throsby, joining the Wetlands Walk to the hills above. Since the development of the suburb of Throsby, there has been a lot of changes in the Mulligans Flat area, with extra tracks, different entrances and some raised walkways around the place.

This walk combines a couple of hills in Nicholls and makes a circuit around part of the CSIRO research station. Joining Percival Hill and Harcourt Hill can be done in a circuit.

Canberra Walks – Oakey Hill

Oakey Hill is a good, quick walk which can be reached from a number of different points. At 648m, Oakey Hill is not the biggest of hills. It’s somewhere you pass as you drive along the Tuggeranong Parkway. Despite seeing it regularly, it’s not somewhere I have been often. There are various access points, mainly [&hellip

Canberra Walks – Dunlop Grasslands – Mt Rogers

A walk around Dunlop Grasslands before popping up Mt Rogers. The Dunlop Grasslands area is something I haven’t explored so much and I think there is still plenty of room for exploring. On this journey I had a stroller which is not particularly ideal for all of the surfaces. There are fences and gates and [&hellip

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
