In a field immediately to the east of the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre (gaol for young people under 18 years), near the Federal Highway, at the suburb of Mitchell, Australian Capital Territory.


  • 1PE - around 12.45pm



Lunchtime excursion, parking on the road not too near Bimberi so as to not agitate the guards too much....



A sign at the entrance road to the gaol complex, at the corner of Morisset Road with Old Wells Station Road, proclaims "No Unauthorised Entry". Accordingly, I took pictures from there and at several points along Old Wells Station Road looking along Morisset Road towards the hash site. I was able to identify a prominent tree near the hash point, and will mark it on the images. A secondary road, parallel to Morisset Road and along the front of Bimberi, turns out to be a "right of way" and horse track, with a horse-safe stile on Old Wells Station Road. This road is beside the Canberra agricultural show grounds (Exhibition Park In Canberra -- EPIC) that is in turn over the road from the Canberra Racecourse.

On the drive back to work, while passing the Australian War Memorial, I saw a commemoration of the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba, with a 'troop' of horses with their riders dressed in World War 1 style uniforms proceeding along Anzac Parade. Look out for the pictures on Wikipedia.
