Easy track
Starting from the car park just off Majura Road, ACT, this circuit walk takes you through both the Crazy Crab and The Flash walking tracks in the Majura Pines Recreation Area. Amidst the tall and thin woodland, you won’t have to worry about losing sight of your kid too much. As they ride their bike, enjoy the relaxing aura of the area and listen to the birdsong. You may also come across interesting wildflower species, so keep an eye out for them. Dogs are allowed but must be on leash. 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.
