Overview

As the first satellite town centre of the ACT to be developed, Woden suffered from demolition of much of the evidence of its pastoral history. The Soldier Settlement Scheme post World War I is a strong theme here as well as innovative developments at Swinger Hill and Callam Offices. On the Woden Heritage Track you will discover geology, nature and learn about one of Canberra’s few earlier primary industries—forestry.
