The Pinnacle NR

The Pinnacle NR is one of a chain of Canberra Nature Park reserves in the Belconnen hills. Heavily planted with trees in the 1980s and 1990s, it now offers a lovely mix of woodlands and open areas, including a largely undisturbed patch of remnant Red Stringybark woodland, and expansive views across the Molonglo Valley. July is a good time to spot the Scarlet Robins that regularly over-winter at the reserve, and the local Speckled Warblers are enjoying a bit of a resurgence in recent years.
Meet at 9 am at the reserve gate at the southern end of Dungowan St, Hawker and feel free to bring something for a spot of morning tea at the Pinnacle summit, weather permitting.
