Isaacs Ridge, Mount Wanniassa and Farrer Ridge
3 h 15 min to 5 h
Starting from Long Gully Road, just south of Isaacs, ACT, this circuit walk explores 3 reserves(Isaacs Ridge, Wanniassa Hills and Farrer Ridge) visiting Mount Wanniassa along the way. Going through three reserves and giving you a compact tour of each one of them, we can easily say that this walk is quite uncommon. Start by heading up and down the Isaacs Ridge through the dense pine plantation. Then make your way up Mount Wannaissa to get panoramic views over Canberra and Brindabella Range. Finally, explore the endangered Yellow Box-Blakely’s Red Gum woodland of Farrer Ridge, where you can spot a Pink-tailed worm-lizard if lucky. Hiking poles are recommended, especially for the Isaacs Ridge part of the hike. Also, don’t get confused when you get to the start point after you make it down Isaacs Ridge(midway through the walk), you’re on the right track. 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.
