On this track - The Limestone Plains, you'll discover a land explored and colonised by convicts and free immigrants, as part of New South Wales, Britain's first Australian colony. British explorers named the area the Limestone Plains after its geology. 'Canberry' was the first officially settled land on the Molonglo River in 1823. This was before the establishment of Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. By 1900 the Limestone Plains consisted of farming properties and a few small villages. Queanbeyan was the nearest town until Canberra was established.
