A new way to experience the Canberra Centenary Trail

The Canberra Centenary Trail, a 145 kilometre self-guided loop trail for walkers and cyclists, showcases the best of the city’s urban and rural landscapes and takes visitors days to experience, until now.

Canberra’s Centenary Trail hyperlapse video takes views on the trail journey, from start to finish, in just over seven minutes. The video, which took over a year to create, explores the trails across the many distinct seasons of Canberra.

VisitCanberra collaborated with local videographer, photographer and writer Dave Fanner to help showcase the beauty and breadth of experiences the Canberra Centenary Trail has to offer.

The Centenary Trail is divided into daily sections. You can join or leave the trail in many locations. It's designed for low-intensity use by all walkers and for cyclists of moderate ability.

The entire trail can be explored as:

  • a 7-day walk, averaging just over 20 km per day
  • a 3-day ride, averaging just over 45 km per day
