Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is closed today, Tuesday 12 November due to the declared total fire ban.
The Visitor Centre remains open.
The Sanctuary at Tidbinbilla offers fabulous nature based experiences and a great way to discover our natural world. A large wetlands ecosystem surrounded by bushland and protected by a predator-proof fence provides sanctuary for a range of native animals in a natural setting.
Stroll along a wheelchair accessible pathway that meanders through a series of interconnected habitats. Linger at the lookouts, search for platypus from the boardwalks, observe the resident and migratory bird life, explore granite outcrops or get up close to reptiles.
You might encounter a variety of wildlife while exploring the Sanctuary.
Ranger guided activities and volunteer interpreters are available on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.
