Oak Hill and NSW Border from Forde
1 h 45 min to 2 h 45 min
Starting from the car park on Mulligans Flat Road, Forde, this walk takes you to the Northern Border Campsite near the border of NSW and Gungahlin and back, visiting Oak Hill along the way. At the hill summit, stand where the surveyors of the past once stood, and try to figure out how they determined the borderline. Skirt the border beforehand as you explore the woodlands of Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve, with a chance to see some ducks in the ponds along the way. The area is also home to the hooded robin along with some parrot species, so birdwatching can be quite fruitful. 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.
