On this relatively short, but very varied, walk, we will learn about Walter and Marion Griffin’s vision for Canberra, early settlement in the area, railways which came (and went), dairy farms that existed until the 1960s, a community which built its own hall, and the wetlands created when the Lake was flooded. We will even talk about Deep Time – but what about the future? What will the proposed East Lake area be like, and will we lose some of our heritage?
The Walk is mostly on footpaths with a small section of track in the Wetlands. Hats and sunscreen recommended.Hats and sunscreen recommended.
