Rediscover Canberra with WalkSmart!
Posted 8th December 2020. Category: General.
Canberra is a beautiful city, built around a man-made lake - Lake Burley Griffin - there has been a lot of development since it became Australia’s capital in 1911. Being spread out and not overly dense - it has an excellent balance of city and country-side - with the best of both. Excellent opportunity for employment and education, yet relaxed suburban lifestyles. You head out of the city 10 minutes and you see farmland, countryside and rural agriculture - excellent for activities such as mountain biking and camping.
There is a new activity in town, and it’s eScootering - a new way to rediscover Canberra. Electric scooters make everything feel much closer - in a city where everything is already close. Canberra electric scooter companies WalkSmart, Beam and Neuron enable people to connect with the city in a new way - whether it’s exploring the different sights or riding with friends. In other cities, Lime, Bird, Bolt, Voi allow individuals to pick up an e Scooter from the street, and rent it directly via their app. Both Beam and Neuron enable Canberrians to do this throughout Civic and closely surrounding areas.
Canberra is a small city, with a population of nearly 400,000 spread over an area of 814km2, most of the population resides within 15km of the center - Civic. Getting around on an eScooter in Canberra is a breeze! Large flat open footpaths, you can visit all the sites without the need for public transport or a car!
We recommend a ride up to Parliament house, you can lock the scooter outside the front entrance while you visit inside, or ride around on Parliament drive. It's one of Australia’s most amazing buildings!
From Parliament house, it's a short ride down to Old Parliament House, then Questacon, the High Court, and the National Gallery - all within 1km of each other! Further across the lake is the Australian War Memorial, then head into Braddon and Civic - the center of Canberra.

WalkSmart recommends that you check your local state laws and regulations in relation to using electric scooters in public locations, roads and footpaths. Laws vary state by state and therefore may limit use to private locations only. Each local body is reviewing public electric scooter use, so we expect it to be regulated, but legal in all states within the short term. Feel free to contact WalkSmart if you have any further queries.
