Starting from the intersection of Clunies Ross Street and Dickson Road, Acton, this walk gives you a tour of Black Mountain Peninsula District Park via a concrete footpath all the way through, then loops back. Literally in the heart of Canberra, this walk is a great way to get to know the city better, whilst enjoying the scenic lakeside of Burley Griffin. Pass by the Sullivans Creek on your way and feel the refreshing breeze early on. There’s a lot you can do when you’re at the peninsula, from having a peaceful picnic with your family to going crazy on the inflatable slides of Canberra Aqua Park. You can also birdwatch, as there are many species flying above and residing in the area. Red Wattlebirds and White-plumed Honeyeaters are some of them, along with the iconic Black Swan every now and then. Unfortunately, your dog can’t enjoy this journey with you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
