    Hiking and walking

    There are so many hills that are around canberra where you could hike.Hiking is a good way of enjoying the abundant natural beauty around here.The kangaroos running wild with their joeys would add fun to your hiking experience.

    Looping the lake

    Not quite like running around the world

    It's a 20 km loop around Lake Burley Griffin and, on one Sunday morning when I was there, the Canberra Veterans running club were out doing their thing; and there sure were a lot of them. They have a staggered start (and some a staggering finish!) where there are three start times each one half hour apart. This allows the field to wind up a lot closer to each other and saves those hard working voluntary officials spending all their Sundays directing traffic.
    They don't always do the full 20 kms, often it's the shorter courses and not everyone goes fast. I vividly remember taking a picture of a guy and thinking "Gee, he's going slow". I then turned to follow him, walking. I couldn't help but notice after about thirty seconds that I was actually catching him! Still, he was an exception.

    Equipment: Running shoes are handy, shorts are good and a singlet or T-shirt can be a bonus when they go to pin your number on. Personally, I'm not in to skin piercing so I'd certainly wear some upper garment.

    Walking Tracks in Namadgi Park

    Much of Namadgi's beauty lies beyond its main roads and picnic areas. Notes on the Park's 160km of marked walking tracks can be found in the Namadgi National Park
