Walking and cycling maps

Canberra has an excellent network of shared paths and identified routes that people can use without having to go on the road. Some of these can be seen from our roads, others are ‘hidden’ but provide very pleasant routes to get you to your destination.

Town Centre Guides:

Your Guide to Cycling in Canberra is available for free from The Canberra and Region Visitor's Centre or you can contact Pedal Power (phone 6248 7995) and they will mail you one for $7.00.
