NATIONAL TRUST (ACT) HERITAGE WALKS
The Tharwa Bridge and De Salis Cemetery Walk scheduled for 26 November was cancelled because of the condition of the track. It has been rescheduled to Sunday 25 February. Bookings for November have been carried over but if you would like to book for this walk in February, go to https://www.trybooking.com/CLMID
Heritage Walks are open to anyone and are a fabulous way to explore important aspects of Canberra’s heritage with our expert guides.
We use an audio tour guide system. This was supported with funding made available under the ACT Heritage Grants Program
Heritage Walks are open to all so please let people know about walks that may be of interest to them. Walks are usually held on the fourth Sunday of the month. Walks will commence at 9.30 am from the meeting point set out under each walk and will last between 1 ½ to 2 hours (unless advised otherwise). Numbers are limited and bookings are essential. Please read the Guidelines for Walkers before booking.
Walks are generally between 2 and 4 kilometres and have reasonably frequent stops but walkers should be able to keep up with the group so as not to inconvenience others. Walks are not generally suitable for prams, small children, wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
Our bookings open 1 month before the Walk. If a Walk is full, please add your name(s) to the waiting list as there are often cancellations or we may repeat walks if there is strong demand.
Price: $15 (unless otherwise notified)
Note: For the comfort and safety of other walkers, we do not allow dogs on our walks.
