Walkers ascend Mount AInslie, a popular look out across Canberra and part of the Centenary Trail, a multi-use trail connecting Canberra's nature parks and reserves

Discover the natural capital

Walkers, cyclists and nature lovers can experience the best of Canberra’s urban and natural environments on the Centenary Trail, a legacy of Canberra’s 100th birthday celebrations. The 145-kilometre self-guided trail loops around the ACT, is family friendly and can be experienced in sections. For those keen to tackle the whole trail, it will take about seven days averaging 20-kilometres per day.

The trail traverses mountains, grasslands, nature reserves, the Murrumbidgee River Corridor including the stunning Red Rocks Gorge and includes places of both Aboriginal significance and evidence of early European arrival and agricultural endeavours before Canberra became Australia's capital city.

For those who enjoy a challenge, the CBR Challenge is on in March and offers 25km, 50km or 100km options to cover the trail as teams or solo. Grab your friends and discover another side to the true nature of Canberra.
