Just 45 minutes from Canberra's CBD is the stunning Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. With over 100 hectares of varying habitats, Tidbinbilla plays an important role in conservation and houses all manner of native wildlife, including wallabies, emus, koalas and platypuses.

There are many ways to spend your time in the reserve, from strolling the 2.1-kilometre Sanctuary pathway through wetlands to conquering one of the 22 different walking trails.

Our recommendation would be the Koala Path, a short 700-metre loop that'll guarantee ample sights of the iconic fuzzy, grey tree-dwellers. A great option for kids due to its relatively short distance and easy-to-spot creatures, the Koala Path is practical and easy to finish on any trip to the sanctuary.
