Our weekend activities
01.08.2011 - 31.10.2011 20 °C
Canberra and the surroundings are a huge playground for outdoor people. You can truly walk as much, as far and as remote as you like!
We show you a few nearby areas we have visited over the last six months.
Mount Majura and Mount Ainslie Nature Reserve
1100 ha, right at our doorstep
We walk there almost every day and regularly forget to take pictures! What is certainly worth showing are the large numbers of Eastern Grey Kangaroos who are not bothered in the slightest by people. If the fence is not high enough, they might come straight into gardens!
Old native trees attract lots of birds: cockatoos, galahs, gang gangs, rosellas - to mention just the most colourful.
Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve
500ha, 10min car ride
20min by car
Camels Hump, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve
1300m, 6000ha, 1 hour by car
We even spotted a red-bellied black snake on this walk (venomous but not deadly). This 1m long friend did not trouble us at all. It only wanted to continue sun bathing.
Mt Tennent, Namadgi National Park
1383m, 106,000ha, 45min by car
