This guided tour will introduce us to the new Lyneham and North O'Connor Heritage Trail, developed by the Lyneham Community Association.

About this event

The walk will visit many of the sites on the Lyneham and North O’Connor Heritage Trail including the Lyneham Shops, the Tolldale Homestead site, the 13th Canberra Scout Hall, Jandura Park, the Lyneham Wetlands, St Ninian’s Uniting Church and Old Canberra Inn. The sites in the Heritage Trail illustrate the phases of the early European settlement of the area and later suburban development of this part of Canberra. Participants will also be able to view the large Community Map installed at the Lyneham Shops which highlights the heritage trail and local heritage sites in the suburb. Along the way the LCA will talk about its efforts to identify and recognise local heritage.

Meet: Lyneham Shops, Hall Street Lyneham. Meet at the Community Map, near the toilet block between the IGA and Mee Sing Chinese Restaurant on Hall Street.

Walk Leaders:  Angela Rymer, developer of the Heritage Trail, and Gordon McAllister and Karlene Dickens, Committee Members of the Lyneham Community Association.

Bad weather:  Unless otherwise advised by email, we will be at the meeting point where a decision will be made as to whether to proceed or postpone.

Note:  For the comfort and safety of other walkers, we do not allow dogs on our walks.

Audio tour guide system: we will be using our new audio tour guide system to help the hard of hearing and to assist in physical distancing. We have two types of earphones - one fits over the ear (not in) and the other over the head. You are welcome to bring your own earphones (with a normal phone jack ie not an Apple lightning connector). The receivers and earphone will be sanitised and you will also be asked to use hand sanitiser before use. The use of the system is optional.

COVID-19 safety: Please check the current ACT health guidelines on protecting yourself and others before booking on this walk. Please note that you must cancel if you are unwell (a refund will be provided on request); you should maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres from other people during the walk and observe good hygiene to prevent the spread of germs. If required, your contact details will be provided to health authorities. For this reason, we are now asking for your phone number. Hand sanitiser will be available before and during the Walk.

Refund Policy: If cancelled more than 7 days prior to the date, a refund will be given. Heritage Walks are booked via Eventbrite and can be cancelled via Eventbrite.

As we regularly have a waiting list for Walks, we appreciate early notice of cancellation so we can offer places to those on the waiting list.
