  • The most wonderful national park. Every trail offers something different. Around every corner of a winding track, something new can be discovered: the cascading streams and rivers, the large boulders and rocks, the, what seems, untouched forests, and the wildlife. All trails are well maintained, signage is well done and all maps state the level of physical fitness (light, moderate, hard) that can be expected when walking the track. The Sanctuary is also must when visiting Tidbinbilla. Very easy parking, and good access for wheelchairs and strollers. It is also very educational for adults and children alike. I can highly recommend it to anybody.
  • You can find all sort of animals in this natural reserve. There's also a small museum and souvenir shop at the entrance for greater understanding of this reserve. Unfortunately I was unable to spot platypodes but I did see some koalas. Perfect place to take a walk. Highly recommended.
  • Great scenic view. We can see a lot of kangaroos and wallabies there. But start early and pack food as you need more time to go for a round . There are a lot of walking trails, so those who are adventurous can have a walk. But the sanctuary is a bit boring as we can't see much birds and there were only a few ducks and also the water is too dirty. Those who are nature lovers likes the place. You can see koalas too. But the place is a bit artificial.
  • Beautiful reserve not far from Canberra at all. Visit to see all kinds of native Australian wildlife in their true natural environment (which is just as amazing as the animals themselves).
  • Great place to visit . But was told at the desk there was a kids activity on around 1.30 where they use fishing nets to fish for bugs . We waited around the pond especially for it for more than an hour . No phone service and no one was there at 1.30! Around 1.50 the person in charge of the event came by and said it wasn’t on . Very disappointing! Went straight to the park after and other parents also said the same thing . The wildlife was amazing and the park was great too !

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
