What we'll do
Explore Kingston with your furry best friends on this urban walk through the oldest and newest parts of this trendy suburb.
• start and end at the Kingston shops (some of the earliest in Canberra);
• cut through the new apartment and restaurant precinct on the eastern shore of Lake Burley Griffin;
• loop back through pretty tree-lined parks and streets of old Kingston featuring heritage listed cottages
• finish up with an optional coffee/late breakfast at one of the great cafes in Green Square
This is a mainly on leash walk, but our dogs will have one off leash opportunity at the Kingston oval, and they'll get plenty of stimulation walking on-leash through the busy Foreshore precinct, along boardwalks and over pedestrian bridges.
The walk follows a circular, flat and mainly paved route of between 4-5 km which may take up to 2 hours to complete with a group.
There is ample free parking on nearby streets, but it may be difficult to get a spot close to our meeting point as the car park in Eyre Street is now a building site.
To help cover our meetup subscription, insurance, website hosting and other costs, we ask $5 from each adult ($5.20 if paying by card) participating in the walk. Payment should be provided to the guide at the beginning of the walk. The guide will refund your payment if you are not satisfied for any reason.
Please understand that all off leash activities are at the discretion of the walk guide. If the guide feels your dog needs to stay on leash, please respect their decision as they are trying to please a large group and keep everyone happy and safe.
