Event description
Let's celebrate the Holiday Season with a Hike To Booromba Rocks from the Honeysuckle campground.

About this Event

YAY! I love the silly season!

It's holiday season and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate what has been an awesome year, than hiking the Booroomba Rocks trail from the Honeysuckle campground.

One of Canberras best known and loved bush walks. This is a popular walk that commences from two seperate locations with this longer walk starting at the old Honeysuckle Creek Space Tracking Station (it contributed to the Apollo space program).

The first four km of the trail is relatively easily and meanders through the bush to the Booroomba Rocks carpark (an alternate starting point for those wanting a shorter walk). There is also another toilet facility located here.

From the carpark the trail continues mainly upwards at a steady and sometimes steep incline towards the main summit. This main summit area is not the highest point at the peak and while providing great views an additional walk of about 400 metres will take us to to the best viewing area of Canberra. Caution is needed if using these minor tracks as we will come very close to the edge if we fail to pay attention. From the highest point of this peak we will have uninterrupted views over Canberra which during the warmer months of the year, are spectacular.

When: 8:00am Saturday 21December 2019

An early start will see us beat the heat of the day and we can get back to Honeysuckle Campground for a celebratory end of year glass of bubbles 🥂 and some Christmas nibbles and cheer!
