We visited this area to see Gibralta Falls. An amazing view and very easy to get to. Well set up access with a short walk to view the falls. Highly recommend

Beautiful spot. Hard to believe it was devastated by a fire ten years ago. Worth the drive. Great views and good picnic spot.

This park is less well known than its Tidbinbilla sister but is well worth a visit. It has a fascinating indigenous heritage along with the more recent history of the Canberra pioneers and the former site of a modern (no longer extant) space station. A day or half day visit is recommended.

As I walked along the corridors, the photos on the walls, the furniture, audios, etc evoked so many memories of the parliamentary history of Australia. There were audio clips on the visits of Queen Elizabeth II so many years ago when she was a very young woman.

Make sure you start off at the visitor centre to get an idea of the scale of the park, and the wonderful walks you can do. The staff are friendly and helpful and will give advice on good places to go. There are walks that take hours or, if you've only a short time, take the easy woodland loop path.... More

Dont know if the Cotter Reserve is part of this Nat Park, but golly it was a public holiday and we could not get a parking spot, and there were so many people picnicing with families etc, it was a buzz with fun and jolly. Walk to view the Cotter Dam, easy... More

We had decided to do some outdoor activities this time in Canberra. We decided on Namadgi, and were very glad we did. The visitor centre was excellent, and recommended some walks. When I said that we had walked to the top of Kosciusko, she suggested Granite Tors Walking Track. It's graded as 'medium', but when we returned, a sign indicated... More

The Yankee Hat art sites are located within Namadgi in the Gudgenby Valley, (approximately 30 km south-west of the township of Tharwa or 90 mins drive from the centre of Canberra) in a complex of boulders situated at the foot of Yankee Hat Mountain. The 6km (easy) roundtrip walk is well worth it and you're rewarded with beautiful aboriginal art... More

The family really enjoys this place as we are able to have elements of a day that everybody gets a bit of. Good BBQ spots, competition can be fierce though after 12.30. Kangaroos and wildlife to be seen in abundance. The flying fox is great fun, even for adults!

We visited Yankee Hat again. A great place to see wedge-tailed eagles. The walk to see the Aboriginal art is highly recommended.
