Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve Walk & Picnic

OK everyone it will be the beginning of spring and time to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and scenery at Tidbinbilla.  You can come for a walk and picnic or just a picnic.

0915 Meet at Canberra to Car Pool if Car Pooling
0920 Leave and Drive to Tidbinbilla
1030 Meet at the Sanctuary Car Park inside the reserve as per the map in the following link:
[masked] Two hour walk around the various animal areas (Sanctuary Loop 2.1km rate at 90min but with stopping to look at animals is more like 2 hours)
1300+ Picnic (in the big area where the kangaroos hang out) - I think this is Sheedy's on the map

So if you are car pooling meet at 915 and leave together.
If you aren't car pooling then meet at the Sanctuary Car Park at 1030
If you arent walking then please join us at the picnic ground (Sheedy's on the map) at 1300.

Please RSVP using as it makes it easier to keep a track of numbers and co-ordinate car pooling (Note meetup is free, quick and easy to join):  If you arent able to RSVP using meetup you can RSVP to [masked], however it would be appreciated if you could take a few minutes to join meetup and make it easier to manage the RSVPs and car pooling.  When you RSVP please comment and say whether you have seats available for lifts, are just driving yourself or need a lift.  Please also indicate if you are coming for the walk and the picnic or just the picnic.  It is recommended you print out the map in the link above.  Please note there is a small charge to enter the park but at $10 / car it isnt too bad :) .   You can pay this fee at the visitor centre on the day as you arrive.  People who RSVP wil be sent a mobile number for the day in case you get lost or want to ring for any other reason.

Please ensure all food is VEGAN and list ingredients so we can all share each others wonderful fare :)

If you need a lift please RSVP by Thu 6/9/2012 - 2pm to make it easier to help organise lifts.

Look forward to seeing you.

    Hi Sundara and all. Seems I have a full car now. 2 guests - Don and Rosie - and will pick Rowena up on the way through. See you Sunday:) Forecast is for sunshine and 19 - perfect picnic weather.

    Right I should now be able to go (yay!). Entry is free before about 8am, and there are more birds about, so if someone (with a car) felt like doing some birding and wildlife watching (plus getting in free) before the picnic I would be very keen to join them!
    Look forward to seeing you all there!

    Oh I wish this was on a Saturday, as I'd love to go-but I am normally tied up (metaphorically) on Sundays...
