Walk Number 18 – Australian National University


It was my walking buddy who summarised today’s walk around the campus of the Australian National University – it was a contrast between the green glory of nature and the dramatic architecture of a growing university.  I’ve added a few adjectives for extra effect.

Walk Number 18 was described as “Sculpture and Architecture”.  We saw lots of architecture but not much sculpture, probably because I made up a new path.  These walks take twice as long when carrying a camera.  With other things to do, the mapped route was shortened to something manageable – again.  So, saving the sculpture for another day.

Series Notes

I’m drawing my walking inspiration from Marion Stuart’s “Canberra’s Best Bush, Park & City Walks”, published by Woodslane Press Pty Ltd.  The book contains details of 49 walks of varying lengths and grades.
