Starting from The Sanctuary’s southern car park off Tidbinbilla Reserve Road, Paddys River, this walk takes you on a circuit around The Sanctuary via a concrete track all the way. The Sanctuary is an environmental project that is surrounded by a ‘predator-proof’ fence for about 40 years, thus teeming with wildlife. You can come across platypuses and brush-tailed rock-wallabies, along with some superb fairywrens(which are basically lightning-fast fluffballs) whilst going through the facility. The area is built to save endangered animal species from extinction. The track is flat and concrete all the way through, therefore wheelchair accessible. It is also a great spot to have a family picnic as there are plenty of picnic tables at scenic spots all around. 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.
