We started our walk from the smokers car park (just a few metres up from the bobbin slide car park area) and it took less than an hour each way. It was less strenuous as the climb up/down is minimal. There are flora & fauna to look all along the way (lizards & wild flowers as in pic). Carry water... More

We go here regularly with our 2 year old granddaughter and there is always something new to see. A favourite place is the children's' playground which has stunning views to the mountains as well as picnic, barbecue and rest room facilities. We also take visitors here because it gives them an idea of the typical landscapes of the area. We... More

You need to do a little bit of research to find the turnoff to the carpark for this walk as the signposts are not that clear. Once you turn off the main road you follow a gravel road that passes through a couple of low creek crossings to arrive at the carpark. The walk to Yankee Hat is clearly marked,... More

Beautiful park with some really worthwhile walks. If you go during the week, you'll have it all to yourselves! Less than an hour's drive from Canberra, too.

There are a number of great trails of different levels of difficulty. It has some excellent picnic locations. Make sure you take all your rubbish with you once done to maintain the pristine nature of the surroundings.

We (me, wife, 14 yo son) climbed to the top of Booroomba Rocks. The climb is approx 200 of elevation over about a 1.2km trip (one way). This is not an insignificant gradient and an average level of fitness is required. The track is well marked one you are on it, but be careful to start on the right track.... More

Walked to Square Rock and Orroral Valley Lookout, a well graded walk with a pleasant view at the end. Gibraltar Falls also well worth a visit

A wonderful slice of alpine heaven barely thirty minutes' drive from the centre of Canberra. Scenic roads, challenging walks (especially the epic Booroomba Rocks walk), stunning scenery and a great visitor's centre that should be everyone's first stop. One of the ACT's hidden gems.
