Moderate track
Starting from Kambah Pool Road, Kambah, this return walk takes you to the summit of Urambi Hill via the BNT, Horse Track and Learmonth fire trails. As you take the final step and reach the top, expect a rewarding view of the Brindabella Range, along with Mount Taylor and Black Mountain in the distance. But the good thing is, you’re able to see all around you, with nothing blocking the picturesque panoramic views over southern Canberra. You can also watch for birds throughout the track, as there may be a Baillon’s crake flying over your head. Kangaroos, horses and echidnas are also present in the reserve. Keep in mind that there are no toilet facilities provided. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
