Where can I find Canberra’s highest streets?

By scentednightgardens - 28 June 2015 15

This is a bit a random I know, but can anyone tell Scentednightgardens which Canberra suburban streets (and respective suburbs) have the highest elevations in Canberra?

I am looking for streets in the suburbs, so places like Hall and Tharwa (ie rural Canberra) are out of scope.  I had a quick look at a simple topographic map and reasoned it might be some of the streets in Chapman.  Happy to hear views.

What’s Your opinion?

Surely the OP meant “Happy to see views”?

Southside, Fadden Hills. Northside looks like the Aranda, Macquarie, Mt Rogers and Gunghalin areas. This map is colour coded for heights http://en-au.topographic-map.com/places/Canberra-5128/

Wow! Technology never ceases to amaze me. This would appear to give Sparkes Close, Fadden Hills the first prize.

Sparkes Cl and Richter Cl Fadden at around 730m ASL (heights based on the SRTM 1″ Digital Elevation model http://www.ga.gov.au/metadata-gateway/metadata/record/gcat_72759)

Create a short-list from looking at contour maps over suburbs and then physically check them with the altitude app on your GPS/smart phone in your car (or pushbike, horse, camel etc.)
