Timing was right for the peach/ plum/ cherry tree blossoms. Different varieties planted and likely pretty blossoms over an extended period of time.

Love this walk on a nice day. So many iconic Canberra sights to see. Can be a bit cold near the water in winter.

A terrific walk to do when in Canberra! I also added on walking to Parliament House which made the walk just under 10km. Lots of birds, bunnies & geese...a wonderful walk.

A really nice walk. Also just about one of the only places in Canberra where you can get free parking, always a bonus!

A great way to explore Canberra. The trees look amazing in autumn.
