This is a quick walk down the street to the industrial area close to Roseville Chase. Of course, there are no heavy industries here, so it’s mainly a few car maintenance service centres and some warehouses. As it is spring, there are still plenty of flowers in nearby reserves and on the footpath. I came back by following Scotts Creek into Muston Park. I encountered a cockatoo busy eating – it didn’t seem to mind me at all. On the way back, I encountered another parrot also busy eating but it was high up on the trees.
This is the closest walking track to our house, a mere block away in Chatswood West. The track swiftly descends into Blue Gum creek, and past the Scout Hall meanders in the gully where the creek flows and can be a bit difficult to navigate at times. Climbing out of the gully will take your breath away, and not just because of the views.
We start our 5km bubble exploration simply by walking around the suburb we live in. Our walk takes in the leafy streets of East Roseville and returning via Roseville shops.

In 2020, Floriade has been reimagined (due to COVID-19) with the celebration moving from its traditional home in Commonwealth Park to bloom across Canberra.
The Floriade boxes are contains bulbs and annuals blooming under the museum’s signature entry sculpture, and complements the Garden of Australian Dreams.
We found a fascinating lane called Tocumwal Lane in Canberra that leads into a square that is full of street art.
We explored the Canberra city centre on our last day visiting Floriade. On the corner of Lonsdale and Elouera streets in Braddon, there are colourful boxed displays that rival the vibrancy of the rainbow roundabout that adorns Lonsdale Street.
The Mount Ainslie tourist outlook, one of Canberra’s most popular, provides excellent views of central Canberra and Red Hill to the south and Black Mountain to the west especially towards sunset. According to an article written in 1922, this outlook ‘will afford an ever changing bird’s eye and panoramic picture of the city’s buildings and beauty spots, as well as of the lovely plains that run to join the Yass Plains on the north.’ An air beacon located at the summit is part of the national capital’s air navigation system guiding air traffic towards the nearby Canberra Airport.
The Australian War Memorial is Australia’s national memorial to the members of its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in wars involving the Commonwealth of Australia, and some conflicts involving personnel from the Australian colonies prior to Federation. The memorial includes an extensive national military museum. We visited early in the morning before it officially opened, so there are no one around apart from staff.
