Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is opening its doors and encouraging the Canberra community to attend its annual open day.

This year people are invited to ‘Rediscover Tidbinbilla’, and celebrate its diverse people, habitat and heritage.

Visitors can get up close and personal with the Sanctuary’s abundant wildlife, trek the many walking trails, take part in ranger guided activities, or discover the rich indigenous and early pioneer history of the Tidbinbilla Valley.

Sheedy’s Picnic Area will host free entertainment and various children’s activities including a live reptile display, face painting, a NaturePlay Kids Hub, as well as live music and food stalls.

Indigenous Murrumbung Rangers are on hand to teach eager students how to throw a boomerang or weave a traditional basket.

Entry is free and a free bus service is also available to transport visitors around the Reserve, picking up from the car park at Dalsetta to drop off and pick up locations at Sheedy’s Picnic Area and the Sanctuary.

Tidbinbilla Open Day: Sunday 7 October, 10am-3pm
