Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve now open

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve now open

27 May 2020

The easing of COVID-19 restrictions and reopening of some ACT open spaces means that Tidbinbilla has reopened, however the visitors centre will remain closed for the time being.

Over the past months, the Tidbinbilla team have been busy repairing infrastructure damaged by fire and floods and upgrading various sections of the reserve. Some new additions include a new viewing platform on Cascades and Lyrebird trail, path upgrades for the Sanctuary and the Ribbon Gum Theatre has also been painted and revamped.

The Visitor Information Centre, Nil Desperandum Homestead and the Koala enclosure are receiving upgrades and will remain closed until further notice. All other areas of the reserve are open.

While the Visitor Centre is closed for upgrades and the COVID-19 situation, entry fees will not be charged. The boomgate is open and visitor maps are available from the front of the Visitor Centre.

All annual passes that expire between 1 January 2020 and 31 May 2020 will receive an extension for a period of 5 months following the expiry date of the pass to compensate for reserve closure periods associated with COVID-19 and the Orroral Valley bushfire.

If you plan on visiting the reserve, please maintain distancing, good hygiene and respect the 10 person outdoor meeting limit.
