Descriptions and Stories from the walks of of the Namadgi National Park and surrounds through stories from walking the many tracks. 

 

Welcome to The Walk ACT, a website dedicated to bush walking! My love of bush walking, photography and film making, led me to the development of this site five years ago. What started as a place to share photos and stories, has steadily grown into a large catalogue of walks and journeys.

 

The website is dedicated to providing enough detail to hopefully encourage others to venture out and explore our wonderful and unique native landscape. The articles are not just about walks in Namadgi, but also cover the walks throughout Australia and occasionally, from overseas locations.  

 

It's been a very tough couple of years for bush walkers. First the devastating effects of the drought resulting in heartbreaking environmental impacts on landscape, flora and fauna: then, the extremely destructive bush fires, which have seen many National Parks remain closed to this day due to the dangers of unstable trees and unsafe tracks. Now, in the current COVID climate - and the associated 'lock downs' - things are pretty bleak for the bush walking community

 

But, there will be a time once again, when we can venture into the great outdoors and explore the many trails and routes that beckon to us all. Until then, enjoy the site and I hope to see you on one of my walks (eventually).
