Moderate track
Urambi Hills Circuit starts from Learmonth Drive, Kambah, exploring the woodland of the homonymous nature reserve and looping back, visiting the summit of Urambi along the way. You’ll be dazzled by the impressive views over Lake Tuggeranong as you’re descending from the top of the hill. But that’s not the only part of the journey where you’ll come across such views. The walk provides you with panoramic views over Kambah and Black Mountain on one side, and the wondrous Brindabella Range on the other side. You may enjoy the walk even more in spring, as purple blankets of wildflowers and weeds enhance the scenery. Also, keep an eye out for kangaroos and echidnas as they’re known to inhabit the area. 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.
