For keen bushwalkers, horse riders and orienteers, you can't look past the Kowen Pine Forest. Regarded as Canberra's largest commercial pine plantation, it's also where you'll find an extensive network of trails that are excellent to explore.
One of the most popular walks to complete during your visit begins at the nearby Molonglo Gorge Recreation Area. Winding along the river for 2.5 kilometres, this relaxing stroll concludes in a serene picnic area known as Blue Tiles, which is surrounded by towering pine trees. From here, you can soak up the river and its ancient gorge.
