The Political History Trail will guide you through the ANU campus on a journey highlighting the founding of the University, its historic relationship with Australia's capital city, and its association with several of Australia's most famous politicians. The trail will focus on specific building around the campus and introduce you to the protests, funding decisions, and drunk escapades that helped shape this university into the world-renowned institution it is today.
Starting from Union Court, the trail will take approximately 90 minutes to complete by foot and approximately 60 minutes by bicycle. Most of the areas can be accessed by established bicycle paths.
