Starting from the Flints car park off Tidbinbilla Reserve Road, Paddys River, this walk takes you on a historic circuit in the mixed eucalypt woodland of Tidbinbilla. Mainly focusing on the early life of Tidbinbilla, the journey lets you observe how life was back in the day. Near the toilets, you’ll come across some pine stumps. These were once big sturdy trees, planted by the early settlers to effectively break the wind. Next up is the Flints Homestead, where Sid and Annie Flint used to live. The Sheedy family also lived nearby, at their own homesite(1885-1890). At the time, Julia Sheedy was the only official woman landowner in the Valley. Besides the historic homesteads, there is a spire-like rock named Church Rock. It is believed to have had religious importance for the early Tidbinbilla community. Masses were held and priests would bring Catholic school children here to instruct them on religious matters. A pioneer of early Tidbinbilla, Mary Ann Green(1865-1911) would also bring her children for Sunday School tuition. You’ll probably run across some kangaroos and wallabies as you enjoy this stroll in nature. Keep in mind that the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve requires a pass, which can be acquired daily or annual. 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.

Walk

Starting from the car park off Mount Franklin Road, Cotter River, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Franklin and back via the same-titled walking track, visiting the Franklin Shelter near the start. With unique views and instant access to the wilderness, this walk through the forest will surely make you feel remote in a matter of minutes. But before heading deeper into the woodland, you’ll visit the Franklin Shelter. This shelter was built to remember and honor the Franklin Chalet, which was significant to Canberrans that were skiing in the Brindabellas. Built in 1938 to serve the Canberra Alpine Club, the cozy chalet was lost to the bushfires in 2003. After the historic visit, you’ll walk along the former ski runs which can be overgrown up to the summit. Expect to see beautiful views of the western ACT from this point. Walk to any direction you want to get less obstructed views, but remember to keep the Trig Point as a reference not to get lost. You can take a right turn from the Trig Station(coming from the walking track) and head along the subtle dirt track to see the rusty Austin A40, which was used as an engine for the ski tow. Keep in mind that there is no reception in the area, so inform others beforehand. 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.
