National Sheep Dog Trials Championships

Sheep Dog Trials are a highly-competitive and challenging sport. Sheep Dog Trials represent a fascinating insight into Australia's rural life with a compelling spectator experience. Sheep Dog Trials are an example of extraordinary team work between dog and handler.

The objectives of the National Sheep Dog Trials are to:
- Promote the welfare of sheep, dogs and humans (and in that order)
- Promote wide human interest in all classes of sheep dogs and to secure proper appreciation and recognition of their place and use in human society and industry; and
- Promote, in every way, the general improvement of the standard, breeding, working and exhibition of sheep dogs.

The Duke of Gloucester Sash was presented to the National Sheep Dog Trial Association in 1945 by His Royal Highness, Prince Henry Duke of Gloucester during his tenure as Governor General of Australia from 1944 to 1947. The Duke was the younger brother of King George 6th and Uncle of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh attended the National Sheep Dog Trial Championships on Finals day, Saturday 26 April 1970 and witnessed the Finals competition. The Queen then presented the Sash to the winner of the National Open Trial, Mr. Bob Ross and his dog Yulong Russ.

Every day of the National Sheep Dog Trials is open to spectators.

Good Friday - Stations of the Cross - combined churches of Hall

From 11:00 am on Good Friday, the churches of Hall will celebrate the Stations of the Cross walking along Victoria St and marking the Stations.

The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, which is a traditional processional route symbolising the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The objective of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.

Those wishing to participate should meet at 11:00 am at the car park at the northern end of Victoria St near the Barton Hwy.

"Gungahlin Gallop" 2.2km, 10km & 31km

Canberra's north side hosts the Series finale. The track from Hall through to Oak Hill along Gungahlin's northern fringing ridge is the Rolls Royce of Canberra Trails. Especially commissioned for the Centenary Trail project, this beautifully sculptured track is a work of art, a trail to fall in love with...
