Starting from the end of Trinculo Place, Queanbeyan East, this walk takes you on a circuit around Queanbeyan River via a concrete track all the way through, crossing two scenic bridges. Convenient to reach and wheelchair friendly, this walk can be a great way to spend some time with the whole family, including your dog. Basically a natural haven in the midst of the city, you can get to know the town in a relaxing way. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
