Heritage Walk 9 – Molonglo River Reserve

Not to be confused with Molonglo Reach or Molonglo Gorge near Queanbeyan, the Molonglo River Reserve at Coombs offers a 2.8km return walking trail through an area of protected Box-gum Woodland north of Holden Creek pond. Experience the natural beauty and discover the unique ecological values with Janelle Dennis from Molonglo Catchment Group. This is Pink-tailed Worm-lizard country and weed removal, reinstating Kangaroo grass and riparian woodland will help support this reptile’s habitat. See what’s left of Riverview Cottage, home to Isaac and Emily (Shumack) Blundell and their eight children along the way with Linda Roberts.

Please note that we have increased the price for Heritage Walks to $10 due to increased costs.
