Walk for this year's Heritage Festival
Walk from Frost Hollow to Forest
Guided by Friends of Aranda Bushland
When: Thursday 26 April from 10am to 1pm
Guided walk: Join Peter Ormay on a journey through frost hollow grasslands, heritage listed remnant Snow Gums edging the grasslands, open woodland and Aranda Bushland's closed forest. Find the ten species of eucalypts each carving its own niche in the resilient landscape. Stop to read the many interpretive signs along the track – a great way to explore local natural heritage!
The walk has heritage values both from the ACT registration of Aranda Snow Gums Heritage Site and the 'hills, ridges and buffers' status which is our inheritance from the early planners who kept the hills with native vegetation and free of buildings. 20 years of parkcare activity conserving our reserves has proved that our eucalypt clad hills have incredible biodiversity as well as landscape value.
Gold coin donation welcomed. Copies of Friends of Aranda Bushland's field guide 'Our Patch' will be for sale.
Difficulty: On the walk you will encounter stiles, slip throughs and a short uphill climb half way up Aranda hill.
Bring/wear: BYO hat, sunblock, water and stout shoes.
Meet: Stile before Black Mountain carpark, Glenloch Interchange, on road off eastbound lane of William Hovell Drive.
