Black Mountain Summit Walks

You are here

Join us to celebrate the anniversaries of the declaration of the Black Mountain Nature Reserve and the creation of the Black Mountain Summit Walk. Two walks have been arranged to celebrate: on Sunday 23 July 2017 and Sunday 30 July 2017. For details, go to those dates in the Calendar page of this website. 

Black Mountain was declared a Nature Reserve by the Hon Peter Nixon, Minister for the Interior, on 23 July 1970 and the declaration was gazetted on 30 July 1970.

The Summit Walk, a cooperative project between the ACT Government, the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) and Telstra, was officially opened on 20 July 2000. 

The celebratory walks are arranged by the Friends of the ANBG and the Friends of Black Mountain.
