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

Easy access and lovely drive, walk or cycle. 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.

Would highly recommend Namadgi National Park. We've only done a small part, but it was lovely. Perfect with 2 young children (7 and 5) - a walk around Yankee Hat - flat and easy 6kms but with wonderful scenery and wildlife - roos, rabbits, kookaburras etc Saw the aboriginal rock paintings. Went to visitors centre first, who gave us really... More

Namadgi is one of our favourite places in the Canberra region. It is vast and beautiful, with the added attraction of the Aboriginal cave paintings at Yankee Hat - and this is an easy walk even for those not used to hiking. If you have visitors from overseas they will be completely gobsmacked by the gazillions of kangaroos! You are... More

If your bored of the usual attractions of Canberra, stretch your legs and visit Namadgi national park. Being so close to Canberra it's a great way to get out in the bush. Depending of the time of year Namadgi has it all, swimming , snow , bushwalking, huts and wildlife.
