Event description
A day of Hiking and History as we explore the Glenburn Heritage Precinct.

About this Event

I thought it would be fun to get out and do something different, and thought it would be fun to explore some of the ACT's/NSW's local settler history. This trail being the perfect opportunity to take a step back in time, and do just that.

The Glenburn Heritage Precinct Loop provides a bit of variation as we will walk through old farmland, and through pine forest to take in some of the Canberra Regions early history. Much of this walk is done on management trail except at the heritage sites themselves.

Sites that we will come across if we walk in the anticlockwise direction are:

▪️Glenburn Shearing Quarters ▪️Glenburn Shearing Shed

▪️Colverwell Graves▪️Glenburn Hayshed Site

▪️Glenburn Hay/machinery▪️Glenburn Homestead

▪️Glenburn Sheep Dip and Yards▪️Kowen School Site

▪️Charcoal Kilns Site▪️Sheep Loading Ramp and yards

▪️Argyle Homestead▪️Coppins Homestead Ruins

▪️Curleys Homestead Site▪️Colliers Homestead Ruins

▪️Atkinsons Trig Station

The weather may still be quite cool. Good socks: merino wool or something similar to keep your tootsies warm, gloves, neck sock, and head bands are all things that can help with keeping comfortable.

Weather:

I will update the weather forecast the day before just to ensure we can all be prepared. It is best to layer dress. It's easier to de-layer and to warm up/cool down and layers are easier to carry in your back pack.

The day will only be cancelled if the weather looks really bad and or dangerous.

I will also be in touch with everyone coming via both the Wilderness Wanderer's FB group and email to confirm any last minute details.
