Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve - Cities, Towns and Localities Accommodation
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is a special place, nestled in the mountains, only 40 minutes from the city, where you can walk among kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, birds, emus and other wildlife in their own native habitat. You may even catch a glimpse of the elusive platypus, swimming through the series of dams in the wetlands area. There are also threatened species at Tidbinbilla, including the brush tailed rock wallaby, the bustard and the mountain duck.

At Tidbinbilla you can glimpse the past way of life of Aboriginal people who have inhabited the area for over 20,000 years, as well as the fascinating stories of our early European settlers.

There are regular ranger guided activity to enjoy the hidden delights of this special valley.

Nearby is the Tidbinbilla Deep Space Tracking Station. A key part of NASA's deep space network. Pictured is the largest antennae within the complex at 70 metres in diameter, which at the time was in contact with the Cassini probe on its historic approach to Saturn in the outer reaches of our solar system.

The radio telescope  is similar in size to a 20 storey building and dominates the landscape. The visitors centre located at the tracking station has a series of fantastic exhibits on space craft, moon rocks, and general information about space. Free information sessions in a theatre are conducted and current activities of the station are discussed.

The deep space tracking station is a must see for all visitors to the region.

Call into the Visitor Centre to find out all you need to know about exploring Tidbinbilla.
