10 August 2020

Great news for nature lovers with the announcement that entry fees for Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve will be waived for the remainder of 2020.

The decision to remove park fees is aimed at encouraging Canberrans to holiday at home and visit parts of the ACT that they may not have seen before.

With interstate travel currently discouraged, locals are reminded that there are holiday options on their doorstep, whether it be for a day trip or camping overnight.

After the Orroral Valley fire tore through the park earlier this year, extensive work has been done to restore Tidbinbilla and neighbouring Namadgi National Park.

The team at Tidbinbilla will continue to closely monitor the reserve in order to protect the habitats of native flora and fauna.

August is also the best time of year to spot platypuses as they spend more time feeding and the males are out preparing for the breeding season.

The newly renovated koala enclosures will give you the opportunity to spy two of these Australian icons during your visit. A new viewing platform has been built to give the best vantage point to see the sleepy marsupials.

The koala enclosures aren’t the only area to have received some upkeep. The Cascades and Lyrebird trails also have new viewing platforms, and the Sanctuary and Ribbon Gum Theatre paths have been revamped and repainted.
