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:

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. I hadn’t [&hellip
It is an easy walk from Cotter Avenue to Cotter Bend. One of the most popular of the Canberra Walks posts has been the walk from Cotter Bend to Cotter Cave. This walk is an easy addition and can easily be done in a stroller. You may even see some emus. It had been a [&hellip
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. In this particular version I added in Palmerville as well. I’d done all the segments before and had written about them on this [&hellip
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
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
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
Walking up Isaacs Ridge with a baby on the back. Isaacs Ridge is one of a large number of hills on the south side of Canberra. The trig point is marked YA90, and measures 810 metres of elevation. I had to pick up some things at an embassy in O’Malley and thought this would be [&hellip
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
