Facelift for Visitors Centre

Tidbinbilla's award winning Visitors Centre will be receiving an upgrade from Tuesday 8 November 2016.

A waterproof render will be applied to the exterior of the Visitors Centre to preserve the mud bricks which have begun to deteriorate. The original mud bricks will still be able to be seen from inside the building.

The beautiful moth artwork on the entrance will also remain.

Disruptions will be kept to a minimum. The Visitors Centre will remain open during the six week period of works (weather permitting). We apologise for any impact on patrons using the facilities during this time.


The Tidbinbilla Visitor Centre provides up-to-date information about walks and ranger guided activities and the gift shop sells an interesting range of clothes, toys, books, cards and souvenirs.

Snacks, icecream, hot pies, sausage rolls, coffee and cold drinks are available at the Visitor Centre seven days a week.
