Namadgi National Park

Namadgi National Park continues to recover after the Orroral Valley fire in January.

08 September 2020

Spring is a beautiful time to explore national parks, and the reopening of the Namadgi Visitor Information Centre comes at the perfect time for Canberrans.

The Information Centre had been closed since the Orroral Valley Bushfire tore through Namadgi and the neighbouring Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve in January.

Staff at the Information Centre have utilised the closure to complete upgrades on the building, including a new paint job, flooring and shopfront.

Visitors to Namadgi can start their trip to the National Park by visiting the Information Centre and learning more about the Park and the efforts underway to restore it.

A long-term Bushfire and Flood Recovery Plan for Namadgi and Tidbinbilla has also been announced. The Plan will help restore damaged infrastructure, assess heritage impacts and safeguard national parks for the future.

Broad-toothed Rats, Two-spined Blackfish and Reiks Crayfish are some of the many species that have been harmed by fires.

The Bushfire and Flood Recovery Plan will help to monitor and support these animals – as well as other threatened species – and their habitats.

Admission to Namadgi National Park is free. Entry fees have also been waived until the end of 2020 at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
