Wherever you are in the world, walking tours are always a great way to discover much about a particular location. The National Capital Authority has produced maps and information for three self-guided walking tours within the Parliamentary Triangle. You can choose from the Anzac Parade Walk, which details the memorials located along Anzac Parade, the Lakeside Walk which takes in Commonwealth and Reconciliation Places or the Burley Griffin Walk which will take you past the historical Blundells Cottage. All walks highlight Canberra’s history and heritage. The idea is to start at the National Capital Exhibition at Regatta Point, pick up a map and head off from there.
For those who would rather be guided around the Parliamentary triangle, the National Capital Authority also conducts three guided walks. Volunteers who have a great general knowledge of Canberra and who are passionate about sharing our many secrets lead these. These tours include the memorials along Anzac Parade, Blundells Cottage from the National Capital Exhibition via Commonwealth Park and also the Parliamentary Triangle itself. Bookings are essential for the guided walks.
