2017 04 13 Black Mtn ANBG Bushland Nature Walk

This was a reconnaissance walk around part of Black Mountain linking up with the Australian National Botanic Gardens’ (ANBG) new Bushland Nature Walk to create a circular walk. My journey was some 8.7km which entailed checking several track options to ensure a viable and sensible future walk that offered great views, sensible climbing and a little excitement tinged with a walk back through the ANBG and sampling the fare at their cafe

6 Apr 2017 Mt Ainslie AWM & Nth Sections with Melba Shed

I led this walk to Mt Ainslie with a total of 10 of us walking. 8 of us met at the Shed & drove in 2 cars to the parking spot on Kellaway St, Hackett where we met 2 more. From 8.30AM we headed around the base of Mt Ainslie to visit the AWM’s coffee shop for coffee & milk shakes, etc. It was a good practice walk for Mt Tennent which we intend to walk up in 2 weeks. The weather today was superb & sunny. Views over central Canberra, the War Memorial & Parliament house great.
