New tracks and trails at the Arboretum

A group of women walking along a dirt track at the National Arboretum Canberra. There is now more to explore at the National Arboretum Canberra.

An extra 12 kilometres of tracks and trails for walking and riding are now open at the National Arboretum Canberra.

The new tracks and trails provide more access for Canberrans and other visitors to explore the Arboretum’s 94 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees. Many of the trees are still young but two of the forests are over 100 years old.

More than 44 000 trees from over 100 countries are growing across the Arboretum which covers a huge 250 hectare (618 acre) site. This makes it one of the world's largest living collections of rare, endangered and significant trees.

You can also have a break and get something to eat or drink at the Sprout Cafe or Conservatory Restaurant after a long walk through one of the many forests. Or you may decide to browse the Curatoreum for a small gift.

Grab the family and spend your next weekend at the National Arboretum Canberra.
