A relatively easy walk along part of the ACT/NSW border in northern Canberra.
This part of the Belconnen Heritage Track honours the surveyors who marked out the ACT border over 100 years ago. It is one of the easiest sections of the ACT border that can be traversed in a rural setting. Water catchment determined the position of the border for much of the ACT. With no watershed to follow on this occasion, the line of the border runs straight from Mt Coree’s summit to One Tree Hill. Surveyors Hill takes on a new meaning after reading about what Scrivener’s team of surveyors had to endure to deliver a border for the ACT.
Meet: northern end of Percy Begg Circuit, Dunlop. Small parking area or on street parking. This is a one-way walk so there will be a car shuffle to near the entrance to Jaramlee property off Hugh McKay Cres, Dunlop.
Walk Leader: Linda Roberts with introduction Ron Jarman, former Deputy Surveyor-General, ACT.
Note: For the comfort and safety of other walkers, we do not allow dogs on our walks.
