The Best Walking Tracks in Canberra & The ACT

Embark on a walk in Canberra to discover a fusion of history, art, and hidden natural oases in Australia’s compact and bushy capital. Take a stroll with the family along the Canberra Lake Loop and discover national landmarks along the way. Or, venture on Canberra walks beyond the centre in the encircling array of nature reserves and national parks, all within an hour’s drive. For a true alpine experience, overnight or just for the day, head to Namadji National Park for a Canberra bush walk through dense eucalypt forest coloured by wildflowers, with gratifying vistas of the impressive expanse below. Canberra is anchored in the perfect position for walking enthusiasts, with a myriad of trails within its reach. One could spend a week venturing along Canberra’s walking trails, however, a journey this long isn’t required to grant an escape from the everyday and appreciate the awe of the landscape.
