History of Weston Creek
The District of Weston Creek is one of the original eighteen districts of the Australian Capital Territory used in land administration. The district is subdivided into divisions (suburbs), sections and blocks. The district of Weston Creek lies entirely within the bounds of the city of Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The district comprises eight residential suburbs, situated to the west of the Woden Valley district and approximately 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) southwest of the Canberra City centre. Situated adjacent to the district was the large Stromlo Forest pine plantation until the forest was destroyed by bushfires in 2001 and 2003.

Weston Creek was named in honour of Captain George Edward Weston, a former officer of the East India Company who arrived in Australia in 1829, and was Superintendent of the Hyde Park Convict Barracks in Sydney. In 1841, Weston was granted land in the district now known as Weston Creek.

The traditional custodians of the district are the indigenous people of the Ngunawal tribe.

Following the transfer of land from the Government of New South Wales to the Commonwealth Government in 1911, the district was established in 1966 by the Commonwealth via the gazettal of the Districts Ordinance 1966 (Cth) which, after the enactment of the Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Act 1988, became the Districts Act 1966. This Act was subsequently repealed by the ACT Government and the district is now administered subject to the Districts Act 2002.

RED HILL

Red Hill is a perfect spot for branch and a brisk walk - you’ll will be rewarded with stunning views and great food. Take the Red Hill Lookout Drive to arrive at the cafe - Little Brother Cafe has a great seasonal menu for breakfast, brunch and lunch. The coffee is also quite excellent.

After enjoying your brunch, you can enjoy a lovely, low-intensity walk up to the Davidson Trig, which is 750 metres above sea level. Along the way you will likely see many beautiful parrots and other wildlife - on past excursions I have seen wallabies, rabbits and a wombat. The track is a wide fire access road and is sometimes used by moutain bike riders.
