Easy track
Starting from the car park near Ginninderra Peninsula District park and at the end of Diddams Close, Belconnen, this circuit walk pivots around Lake Ginninderra leading via a concrete footpath. Convenient to reach and paved all the way, this walk offers you excellent views across the lake for you and your family(including your dog) to enjoy without much effort. Pause and have a picnic anywhere you want as there are plenty of benches and picnic tables around. You may also run into kangaroos which can come as a surprise because you’re basically in the city. 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.
