Canberra Nature Park


Wild flowers in Canberra Nature Park

Canberra Nature Park is made up of 33 separate areas ranging from bushland hills to some of the best examples of lowland native grassland and endangered ecological community of Yellow Box-Red Gum Grassy Woodland left in Australia. The ACT Parks and Conservation Service (PCS) is responsible for managing Canberra Nature Park.

Discover a whole new side of the "Bush Capital" by exploring a Canberra Nature Park!

Most Canberrans reside within walking distance of a Canberra Nature Park where they can explore quiet grassland reserves, or hike to the summits of Canberra's ridges and peaks to enjoy an eagle-eye view of the ACT region.

Canberra Nature Park is home to a number of rare and threatened species such as the Hooded Robin, Striped Legless Lizard and the Button Wrinklewort.
