Acton Walkways encourages and facilitates exploration of Acton, a suburb situated in the heart of Canberra, the Australian Capital. Acton has a long history dating back to the early traditional custodians of the Canberra region, whose cultures are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history. Following the arrival of Commonwealth surveyors in 1909, Acton Settlement was to become Canberra's first 'suburb', and remained the administrative and social centre for the next forty years. It is now a thriving community with a wealth of attractions and activities, beautiful Canberra vistas and scenic walking trails.
Acton Walkways offers monthly guided tours ranging across many themes, led by a variety of expert guides and passionate community members, Visit almost 100 sculptures, 30 heritage sites, national icons, art, music and film venues, and stop by one of the many cafes and restaurants. The Acton Walkways' website includes numerous features to enhance your visit as you walk your way through the Acton precinct. Find out what's on in the region; view maps and information about sculpture, heritage sites, venues and cafes; browse our image galleries, and book online for guided walks.
Acton Walkways is collaboratively sponsored by The Australian National University, the Molonglo Group, The National Film and Sound Archive, and The ACT Government.
