Black Mountain Peninsula 1.1km loop walk - Great for lakeside water play, spotting water birds, riding bikes and scooters, pram-friendly, big open green space, toilet and BBQ facilities and a playground. Join us in exploring Black Mountain Peninsula. Starting at the car park on John Cardiff Close, we’ll join the bike/cycle path overlooking the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin. Depending on the kids interest we may wander down to sandy beach to dip our toes (or more!) in the water before heading up to the shaded playground for a play. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for ducklings, swans and sleepy possums in the trees as we explore. Planned walk is 1.1km returned. Toddler Trails have been created with your increasingly independent child in mind. As kids find their feet, many prefer to be out of the baby carrier and would rather push their pram than ride in it. Toddler Trails allows your child the freedom to explore on their own two legs, while you get some outdoor and social time with other parents/carers.
