Starting just off Kings Highway, Kowen, this circuit walk explores the historic Glenburn Heritage Area leading via Charcoal Kiln Road first. After going through several historic landmarks and a creek, the track goes into a pine plantation and loops back. Take on this walk if you’re interested in the history of Canberra, as it explores historic homesteads, stockyards, orchards and a graveyard dating back to the 1800s. After you read the informative signpost and brochure, you’ll be ready to go back in time. You may also run into some timid kangaroos and not-so-timid(in a good way) bulls on the way, so keep your camera ready. There is a clay shooting club next to the starting point, be careful not to go in there. Also the fence next to the gate is electrified, so try to keep your hands to yourself. 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.
