Last Wednesday, 18 January, was the ninth anniversary of the Canberra bushfires, so it seemed appropriate to track down the memorial. It seems as if They don’t want us to know where it is. Searching the web doesn’t turn up … Continue reading

I wanted to find evidence of the old brickworks railway at Yarralumla. I hadn’t been to the brickworks for decades – not since it was an antique market, which was 1982, according to an ACTPLA timeline I found. I regret … Continue reading

Sunday 19 December 2010 – Weston Community Walk

Dac wasn’t up for a walk so I chose one of the nearby plain-sounding ones: Weston, a 2.3km loop, mainly flat with two incline sections. The incline sections were (sensibly) at the beginning; even so, I could have done with … Continue reading

Sunday 14 November 2010 – Tuggeranong Town Centre Lake Walk

Dac was away in Adelaide. I’d recovered sufficiently from the bug that cost me a week to think about a gentle walk. Saturday had been an oppressively hot, humid day but there’d been rain in the night and Sunday morning … Continue reading

For my first walk after a hectic week which included travel,1 I chose Holder. It’s not far away, and the loop is less than 3 kilometres. Canberra Community Walks map of Holder I wanted something straightforward because rain was threatening … Continue reading
