About Lindsay Pryor Walk, Australian National University

Accommodation ACT welcomes Lindsay Pryor Walk, Australian National University in Acton, for all your attraction and things to do, book your adventure today.

This self-guided walk among 22 significant tree species celebrates the outstanding contribution made by Lindsay Pryor to Canberra's urban forest. Professor Lindsay Pryor (1915-1998) was a man of trees - he was an eminent Australian botanist; founder of the Australian National Botanic Gardens; Director of Parks and Gardens for the ACT; and the first Chair of the ANU Department of Botany. Highlights of the Walk include a variety of eucalypts, including Pryor's namesake Eucalyptus pryoriana; a Giant Sequoia grown from a seed from the world's largest tree - California's General Sherman; a Lace-Bark Pine collected by Pryor from the Forbidden City, Beijing; a Parana Pine from Southern Brazil; and a stand of Lombardy Poplars that predate the ANU campus. The Walk starts just outside the Hancock Library on the Australian National University's Acton campus. You can pick up a map of the walk, with information about all of the trees, from the Hancock Library or the Fenner School. Or download the ANU Walks mobile app, available on iOS and Android, which includes the Lindsay Pryor Walk, as well as many other heritage trails on campus.
