Bruce Ridge Eastern Circuit
45 min to 1 h 15 min
Starting from Kunzea Street, O’Connor, this circuit walk gives you a tour of the eastern part of the Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve via various tracks and trails, then loops back. In the imminent range of the city of Canberra, this compact walk through nature can be a quick getaway from the work environment. Try to spot a rock-wallaby as you make your way through the endangered Yellow Box – Blakely’s Red Gum grassy woodland. Speaking of animals, various species of birds such as the Speckled Warbler and Varied Sittella are known to reside in the area. You can even come across a Flame Robin if you’re really lucky. Dogs are allowed on leash, although keep them away from rabbit warrens as there may be phosphine gas in them due to the rabbit control program. 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.
