Walk

Starting from the Scrivener Dam Lookout, Weston Creek, this walk follows the Molonglo River along Molonglo Valley, crosses the river near the Coombs district and loops back. The burbling sound of water will accompany you throughout the river, as you enjoy the scenic views whilst getting to know the territory. The section after you cross the river mid-way through the walk is concrete all the way back to the start. So you won’t need to worry about misstepping. Don’t forget to watch the strong flow of water from the lookout when you complete the circuit, if you haven’t done so already. 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.
