Overview

Corin Forest, located in the Tidbinbilla Mountain Ranges just 45 minutes from the heart of Canberra, is a year-round alpine adventure. Surrounded by tall forests in a secluded mountain valley, the rustic lodge provides a unique venue in the region.

During winter Corin Forest provides Canberra's only snow experience. Rug up and get set for beginner skiing or snowboarding, with a lesson from one of their fantastic instructors. Visit the dedicated snow play area for tobogganing, snowmen and snowball fights. Afterwards, warm up with a hot chocolate by the fire in the rustic lodge.

In summertime, take in the spectacular views of the Nation's Capital, with Namadgi National Park and Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve right next door. Ride on the exhilarating Alpine Slide that descends 1.2km through the forest. Enjoy one of their delicious woodfired pizzas in the picnic area, named among the top 10 picnic spots in Australia. Nearby Square Rock, and Tidbinbilla make for a great day trip amongst Canberra’s natural beauty.

Corin Forest is on Corin Dam Road, accessible by car via Point Hut Crossing or the Cotter. Check our Facebook page for updates on road closures and detours on snowy days.
