In recognition of Reconciliation Day, entry to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is free on Monday, 27th May. The gates will be open between 7:30am - 6pm, so take a picnic and spend the day at this natural paradise. The Visitor Centre will be open between 9am - 5pm for maps and details.
Perhaps take a walk along the Hanging Rock or Birrigai Time Trails, where you can see and visit granite tors once used as shelters by local Aboriginal people. Learn about how the land was used and the indigenous history of this protected nature reserve.
See the Tidbinbilla website for details.
* The image (above) is of the Birrigai Rock Shelter on the Birrigai Time Trail walk. A section of the floor was taken away for testing in 1986 and scientists found bone, stone, shell and charcoal which showed that local indigenous people were using this shelter over 16,000 years ago, during the last ice age. Take a walk and discover it for yourself! The entrance to this walk is next to the Visitor Centre, at the entrance to the reserve.
