Canberra Centenary Trail - One Tree Hill Lookout
Australia

The Canberra Centenary Trail opened in late October 2013. In the northern ACT it is possible to walk from Hall to Mulligans Flat along the trail tracing the northern ACT border for much of the time, although the entire trail is a lot longer than that - 145km to be more precise. One of the most scenic spots along this part of the walk is the lookout at the top of One Tree Hill overlooking northern Gungahlin.

Here you will find one of Canberra's fire watchtowers, a trig, a perfect cloudless blue sky (if you're lucky, I was on this day apparently) and a small viewing platform attached to a structure that looks like an entrance to a shelter, except there is no shelter behind it! Is this place still under construction, or did the ACT Government run out of money to build the shelter?  Or is this meant to be a simple entrance gate? Who knows, but one could ponder over that sitting on a couple of sun-exposed benches. Or you could just sit and enjoy a very nice view looking south instead.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
