This time, in the hope of not missing anything, I summarised locations from the ANU Sculpture brochure┬áand printed out a map of the area we hoped to cover. We left the car in a parking station near Melville Hall and … Continue reading

Saturday 7 May 2011 – Nicholls

This is the last of the Canberra Community Walks. I’ve now been on all 19 of them. I’d put Nicholls off because it was one of the longer walks – a 3.2km loop, mainly flat with moderate gradients. Dac wasn’t … Continue reading

Sunday 1 May 2011 – Belconnen Town Centre

A short walk where there was so much construction in progress, and so few of the Community Walk signs still standing, that we lost the path at one point. I can’t see on the map where we actually went. Never … Continue reading

Sunday 21 November 2010 – Lyneham walk

The Lyneham walk was (at the time) a bit of a disappointment, not helped by the weather. We left home at 11 and it was already 20 degrees. The forecast was for 26. What normally happens at this time of … Continue reading

Sunday 26 September 2010 – Gordon

It’s an unexpected long weekend in Canberra – unexpected by me, anyway. It seems we’re having two long weekends in a row at this time of year from now on. This one is Family and Community Day, which used to … Continue reading

Saturday 14 August 2010 – Narrabundah

Unpromising weather but we were sufficiently lighthearted, having got the washing in, to set off anyway. We parked at Narrabundah shops, as indicated by the map. Dac pointed out that there was a leaf in front of us at the … Continue reading
