Accessing the ACT border at Brooks Hill Reserve

Today I took advantage of the beautiful weather to visit the eastern-most point of the ACT.

Brooks Hill Reserve is on the ACT/NSW border and will be the starting point of day 5 of Walk the Border ACT in October.

It’s remnant woodland on the way to Bungendore from Canberra and was initially surveyed by Percy Sheaffe, who charted more than half of the ACT’s border in the 1910s.

The blaze marking the border wasn’t difficult to find, etched into a tree that was probably 100 or so years old.

This video shows what it looks like.

Remember the purpose of the Walk the Border ACT is to raise funds for the Conservation Council ACT Region. You can donate by clicking on the link on the right.
