London Bridge Arch and Queanbeyan River
Starting from the end of London Bridge Road, Burra, this circuit walk explores the woodlands of Googong Foreshores, crossing the Burra Creek and Queanbeyan River. The route visits the London Bridge Woolshed at the start and London Bridge Arch near Burra Creek. Although it’s mostly on a fire trail, this track does not fail to capture the ambience and feeling of being in nature. You’ll go through rural areas and dense forests which are filled with wildlife throughout the journey. You may run into some fluffy wombats around the reserve, but don’t mix them up with beavers. These are not master engineers or builders, but they can dig into the earth quite well. Also, keep an eye out for lizards and snakes in warmer months. Don’t forget to check out the historic London Bridge Woolshed near the start, which was built in the early 1930s. You can take the side trip to the homestead as well, although you need to contact the Ranger Station for the opening times first. Please check the forecast and the level of water beforehand to avoid dangerous situations whilst passing the river. 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.
