R G Menzies Walk

Natural Attractions

The R G Menzies Walk was named in acknowledgement of Sir Robert Menzies’ crucial contribution to the final development of Australia’s national capital, Canberra. The two kilometre walk stretches from Commonwealth Avenue Bridge to Kings Avenue along the northern shore of picturesque Lake Burley Griffin.

Read about Menzies’ career as Prime Minister and his role in Canberra’s development on four plaques along the path. Take in the views of Lake Burley Griffin and Commonwealth Park and appreciate the history of this nation’s capital.
