Easy track
Starting from the concrete path just off Namatjira Drive(350 metres southeast of intersection with Kapunda Street), Fisher, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Arawang and back. You’ll be enjoying the panoramic views over Canberra in no time and without much effort too, as the track directly takes you to the top. You can see the Telstra Tower in distance from the trig station on top, which can make a great frame for a picture. An echidna may also make an appearance if you’re lucky. 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.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
Starting from the concrete path just off Namatjira Drive(350 metres southeast of intersection with Kapunda Street), head towards the metal gate near the signpost, moving directly away from the road. Pass through the gap next to the gate and move parallel to the overhead power line as you follow the dirt fire trail. After about 140 meters, keep right and continue straight as the trail splits into two. As the trail you’re on starts veering right, take the narrow dirt track uphill to your left. Keep moving in the same direction and head towards the steps uphill to continue along Mount Arawang Track.....
