Get to know the real Canberra as you embark on an electric bike ride and may even spot koalas, kangaroos, water-birds and more! Your journey begins with a 45-minute picturesque drive to Canberra’s southwest and towards the mighty Murrumbidgee River. Beyond the river lie majestic mountains which your local guide will introduce you to and regale you with stories from Canberra’s history during the drive.
Once you arrive at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve Visitor Centre, take a short break to stretch your legs, enjoy a coffee or a cool drink or maybe explore the gift shop. Then, a 10-minute drive transports you to the predator-proof sanctuary deep inside the park where your guided wildlife walk will begin! Embark on an adventure to see the koalas, wallabies and other wildlife close to the sanctuary carpark. Alternately, you may even take on this mission yourself and venture into the park equipped with a map and a pair of binoculars provided by your guide and set off on a longer, self-guided walk along the well-signposted paths in the sanctuary to spot more wildlife.
It is then time to hop on the electric bikes for a ride with the ‘roos! Spend a few minutes getting acquainted with our electric bikes before zipping through the forests and past open grasslands. The last leg of the nature reserve takes you to visit the NASA deep space communication station where you behold the huge antenna dish!
