Easy track
Starting from Stockdill Drive, ACT, this walk takes you to Shepherd’s Lookout via a walking track of the same name, then loops back. Since it’s quite short and sweet, this peaceful stroll can make for a great family trip, including your dog. When you’re at the lookout, expect a panoramic view over the Murrumbidgee River and the green hills of Woodstock Nature Reserve. As you take in the scenery, try to keep an eye out for Yellow-tailed black cockatoos and other birds. After you make sure you got enough of that view, make your back through the woodland to squeeze out more out of this 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.
