Black Mountain to ANBG Summit Walk – Tower to Flower

Sunday, July 30, 2017 - 09:30 to 12:00

Black Mountain was declared a Nature Reserve by Hon. Peter Nixon, Minister for the Interior on 23 July 1970, and the declaration was gazetted on 30 July 1970. 
The Summit Walk, a cooperative project between the ACT Government, the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) and Telstra, was officially opened on 20 July 2000. 
Two walks have been arranged to celebrate these anniversaries. 

The second of these walks is the Black Mountain to ANBG Summit Walk - walk down the Summit Walk with a local conservationist and an ANBG Guide. We shall see Acacia near the apex and the Zieria plants near the Visitor Centre, ANBG. 

When: Saunday 30 July 2017, 9:30 to 12 noon
Meet: Meet at the Lookout near the Telstra Tower (look for the balloons). If you do not wish to walk back uphill to the Summit, ask a friend to meet you at the Visitor Centre, ANBG. 
The Summit Walk has steep sections, so it is suitable for fit walkers only (including children over the age of 12).
