Mt Majura to Mt Ainslie Circuit starts near MacKenzie Street, Hackett, explores the woodlands of Mount Majura Nature Reserve all the way to the summit of Mt. Majura, then guides you to the summit of Mt. Ainslie to then loop back to the start. You’ll feel like you’ve found a secret communications base after you make it to the top of Mt. Majura. The summit of Mt. Ainslie on the other hand welcomes you with its iconic view of the Australian War Memorial and beyond, angled in such a way that you can try to fool your friends with a well-taken selfie, saying that you’re in Washington D.C. Even if they don’t bite the bait, you’re going home with two summits made in one hike under your belt. The kangaroos and black cockatoos you may run into along the trail can be the icing on the cake. Be mindful that there are unexploded ordnance on the eastern side of the Nature Reserve, so stay on track to be safe. 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.
