Sunday MarchMingle 7km
Welcome to the Sunday MarchMingle, a 7km community walk that leads participants along a bush trail only a stones throw from Parliament House.
Communities at Work is excited to be the presenting partner of this new intercultural walk around the Bush Capital.
If you can’t make it to the Sunday MarchMingle, there is also a different MarchMingle route and picnic day on Saturday. Or you can enter for both days.
Celebrate your cultural roots. Showcase your cultural background and soak up the festive atmosphere as many cultures walk as one.
Together, we can help those facing the Cost of Living Crisis in Canberra whilst having fun and helping to build a more harmonious community.
30% of your entry fee will help Communities at Work stock their Food Pantries for struggling Canberra families.
It costs only $15 to enter and you can take part on either the Saturday (which includes the picnic day) or the Sunday MarchMingle ‘Bush N Back’ walk (or $25 for both days).
For only $15, you can enter the event and have a chance to win a prize just for participating.
Don’t miss out on being a part of the first Communities at Work MarchMingle on either the Saturday or Sunday!
Please enter today and bring your colour and smiles to this unique new annual event supporting Communities at Work.
Make the most of your participation by helping to fundraise and let’s all do our bit to help those in our community affected by the Cost of Living Crisis.
If you can’t make it along to the MarchMingle walk, you can still make a donation on the Communities at Work entry page.
About the Sunday MarchMingle
We refer to the Sunday MarchMingle as a 7km, but it’s actually only 6.5km. It just feels like a 7km route thanks to a few hills.
This route is not suitable for wheelchairs as it includes some narrow tracks through bushland. But it’s not a difficult route for the average family group.
Some walkers who are less steady on their feet may like to use walking poles for added stability on the dirt section of the track, but most walkers will navigate the trail with ease.
Remember, this is a casual walking event and not a race and it’s all for a great cause. Let’s have fun while we raise funds to support those in need.
The Sunday MarchMingle starts from Albert Hall and heads in the opposite direction to the Saturday walk.
Participants will set off through the Canberra Beijing Gardens. Then, you’ll walk along the lake’s edge, passing the Canberra Beijing Gardens. Cross the road and continue on a scenic path next to the Chinese Embassy.
When you get to the next road, Forster Crescent, you’ll turn right and begin walking uphill. Stirling Park and Westlake will be on your right.
Just before the mosque, turn right into the bushland. Walk along a narrow bush track to a narrow fire trail that follows along the ridge. A left turn will take you down a track to the Nepalese Checkpoint.
Then follow along a grassy section behind some houses before veering to your right toward Alexandrina Drive. Just before the road, walkers will turn right and follow the path, crossing Alexandrina Drive as you continue around the lake all the way back to Albert Hall.
A great event for the whole family.
Suitable for all ages.
Last year, the youngest Aussie Peace Walk finisher was just 6 years-old and our oldest finisher that walked on both days was 93.
9:00am – Sunday
The Sunday MarchMingle walk is different to the Saturday MarchMingle Bridge to Bridge walk and picnic day.
The Sunday MarchMingle ‘Bush N Back’ is a 7km intercultural community walk that starts at Albert Hall. You’ll likely meet many of the international and interstate walkers taking part in the Aussie Peace Walk.
The 7km walk starts at 9am and the first section of the walk follows the same route as the 24km and 12km walks. You’ll pass the Nepalese checkpoint, where longer walkers get their passports stamped, before heading back to Albert Hall.
All registered entrants will be eligable to win spot prizes.
