ACT Monaro Riverina Branch: Green Hills visit and talk

24 March 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm AEDT

For our celebration in the month of Canberra’s birthday, we plan to visit the Himalayan Forest at the National Arboretum. The Himalayan Forest was planted by Griffin as one of the three barren hills on the western side of his plan for Canberra which he planned to turn green, along with nearby Roman Cypress Hill, and Dairy Farmers Hill. Trevor Lipscombe will be enlightening us further with fascinating details about all three.

For more information on the Green Hills scroll down this page.

Directions: On entering the National Arboretum take the second road to the right and park in the Himalayan Cedar car park. Gather near the sign indicating the start of the Himalayan Forest Track where we will meet our speaker, and then move as a group through the forest on a gentle sealed path, to arrive at the barbecue picnic area, where there are seats for about 20 behind picnic tables. This where the talk will be held, followed by light refreshments.

Cost: $15 AGHS and FNAC members, $20 non-members (plus 50c ticket fee) including refreshments.

Bookings: are essential. Book through Trybooking.

Enquiries: Margie Bourke,
