Canberra Tracks is a network of heritage signage that incorporates six self-drive routes leading to many of Canberra’s historic sites. Each sign tells exciting stories from a time gone by and the present day. Canberra Tracks immerses you in the rich tapestry of Canberra’s early beginnings as you connect with the lives of early inhabitants.
Canberra is a meeting place where, over time, peoples’ connections with the land have left distinctive marks. Some of these marks have become national icons immediately identifying Canberra as the nation’s capital. Others are more subtle reminders of an age before parliament came to the Limestone Plains of New South Wales. Beside these stand the marks of the Ngunnawal people, whose living culture connects the land with its Aboriginal origin.
