Hard track
Mount Majura from Hackett, starts from Mackenzie St., Hackett, going through both Mt. Ainslie and Mt. Majura Nature Reserves’ woodlands to the summit of Mt. Majura. You can take it as a challenge like some people do, and feel the burn on your calves while your eyes search for the Trig Station at the top, as it can serve as a finish line. Or keep a casual pace, savor the experience, and see if you can spot a Yellow Star of Bethlehem(a spring flower). Keep in mind that this can be a one way route as it is possible to drive to the top. 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.
