Bendora Arboretum guided tour
The Bendora Arboretum is the sole surviving arboretum in the Brindabella Ranges after others were destroyed in the 2003 bushfires.
Reconnect with nature and take some time out to explore and appreciate Canberra’s stunning Bendora Arboretum. With many of the trees over 75 years old, come and get a glimpse of what the National Arboretum will look in years to come.
Located just over an hour from the centre of Canberra, you will be amazed by the beauty of Bendora. Appreciate the hidden beauties of the Namadgi National Park as you take in the stunning autumn colours of conifers and Maple trees.
Take in the fresh air whilst sharing a picnic with friends and family – you’ll find it hard to believe that such diverse wilderness is located in Canberra’s backyard.
The deciduous species will all be budding up... the Coniferous Larches will look stunning with their opening soft feather foliage (Larch are one of the few deciduous conifers in the world – one of 6 deciduous conifers)... the Maples and European Limes are awaiting.
