Easy track
Starting from the car park just off Wunderlich Street at Yerrabi Pond District Park, Gungahlin, this walk pivots around Yerrabi Pond and loops back. Wheelchair accessible, child and dog-friendly, this walk can make a great family trip where no one is left behind. Appreciate the relaxing ambience of the pond and watch for pelicans and ducks as your kid enjoys the playground. It’s a simple and fast escape from city life while still being in it, as the pond is located in the heart of Gungahlin district. 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.
