Annual Pass Extension
As compensation for closures of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve associated with the Orroral Valley bushfire and COVID-19, annual passes that expire in 2020 will receive an extension for a period of 5 months following the expiry date of the pass.
This will be automatically applied to annual passes. Please speak to Tidbinbilla Visitor Centre staff if there are any issues.
