New and Old Canberra Heritage Tracks

RiotPost 12 December 2009 1

TAMS have released their new heritage trails guide called Canberra Tracks. They describe it as “a series of self drive routes that lead to many of Canberra’s historic places, landscapes and communities. They tell an exciting story of time gone by and links to the present”

The full brochure can be seen in 4 parts online:
Track 1 Ngunnawal Country
Track 2 The Limestone Plains
Track 3 Looking at Canberra
Track 4 ACT Pioineers Cemetery Track

Track 4 I’m sure will appeal to RiotACT readers looking at the historic cemeteries of Canberra (including Evatt and Weetangara) as everyone seems to want to go looking for ghosts. The track 2 was interesting with the opening up of Duntroon Dairy for anyone to go wandering around the grounds as it seems to be right up beside Russell Offices, built in 1832 and possibly the oldest building in Canberra.

Looks like TAMS have brought their website upto date with the brochure, otherwise you can pick up a Canberra Tracks brochure from a govt shopfront somewhere.

The cemetery train skips the old cemetery at Hawker.
