Lovely, quiet area to walk around looking for birds, bugs and other wildlife. No pets are allowed in the wetlands area - even on a leash. Quite often there are guided walks and talks run within the wetlands.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking through this hidden gem. Its such a unique environment especially due to its close proximity to the city!

We visited on a wet (appropriately) weekday, for a spot of nature instead of more food. The GPS was confused at first, so it helps to know Canberra a bit - check the map rather than relying on the website, which was not really much...More

It took me a while to work out just how well thought out this place is. There are a number of wildlife hides overlooking various swamps/pools (depending on the weather) on the flood plain alongside Jerrabomberra Creek, near where it flows into Lake Burley Griffin....More
