Starting from the car park off Felstead Vista, Denman Prospect, this circuit walk takes you to Butters Bridge through the grasslands and pine woodlands of Molonglo River Reserve, then loops back. Named after Sir John Henry Butters(known best for his role as the Chief Commissioner of the Federal Capital Commission back in the 1920s), this well-built historical bridge provides you with great views over the Molonglo River. With high and sturdy railings on required areas throughout the track, this walk can make for a great family trip. A riverside picnic can be the icing on the cake as you’re enjoying the ambience. You can also spot and echidna or two, if you’re lucky. 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.
