Nestled in a quaint and picturesque valley just 13 kilometres from Canberra’s CBD lies Woden Valley and Weston Creek. Stately mountains, rolling foothills and twisting rivers are the backdrop to this serene district, creating a unique blend of city and country life. With scenic views everywhere you look, it’s not hard to see why Woden Valley and Weston Creek are such popular residential areas.
One of the original 18 districts of the Australian Capital Territory, Weston Creek has a rich history and was once described by the National Capital Development Commission as "one of the most picturesque parts of the National Capital". Uncover the natural beauty of this region by visiting the Canberra Nature Park. Explore the quiet grassland reserves, cycle over the bushland hills or hike to the summits and peaks for sweeping views across the region.
Woden Valley is at the forefront of sporting life in the Australian Capital Territory, not only boasting countless sporting teams and associations, but also numerous sporting fields and facilities dotted throughout the region. Head on down to one of the many ovals for a game of cricket, rugby, soccer or AFL!
Looking to immerse yourself in the great outdoors? Delve into Isaacs Ridge on one of the many walking and cycling tracks and keep your eyes peeled for the native wildlife that call the ridge home. Pack a picnic and spend the day in complete relaxation with shady trees overhead, lush grass beneath you and birdsong not far away. If you’re feeling a little more athletic, hike to the peak of Isaacs Ridge and take in the panoramic views of the valley and mountains that stretch out before you.
Visit the nearby National Zoo and Aquarium and get up close and personal with a wide variety of native and exotic animals. Cuddle with a cheetah, have behind the scenes meetings with sharks, bears and tigers, hand feed giraffes or simply stroll through the beautiful zoo and picnic under the shady trees.
