  • Went at the end of the day and saw many kangaroos, as promised by a local friend. Nice to walk around, there's also a house that resisted the fire.  more »
  • Only a short drive from the city, the museum and the remains of the telescopes and the domes themselves tell the story of the firestorm that destroyed Mt Stromlo Observatory. The cafe is very pleasant...  more »
  • Amazing layout, well graded and signed, incredibly well maintained; this is an amazing MTB area on the edge of the Australian capital. Make it to the top and take a break at the observatory cafe and t...  more »

  • Lots of awesome tracks, ranging from beginner to "only crazy people go on that one". Tracks are one way only and very well maintained. Great fun coming down
  • Great MTB trails all over the mountain. All levels, beginners to advanced. Jumps, obstacles and purpose built terrain. Plus a road-style track just for bikes, and a kids area to learn to ride
  • Just an amazing place to mountain bike. Trails for all levels including my 3 and 7 year olds. Showers toilets and a coffee cart. Mountain biking heaven.
  • Not many places dedicated to MTB, so gotta love Stromlo, and it keeps improving. Even though it could do with some more elevation, there is still plenty of fun to be had. I would appreciate more freeride oriented terrain however looking at the crowds it is obviously a well loved and needed facility
  • A wonderful facility - just needs hot showers!

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.
