For a day trip or weekend break from Canberra, you can’t miss Brindabella National Park, with spectacular views, 4WD trails, walking, and fishing.

Just a short drive from Canberra, Brindabella National Park offers an alpine bush experience, a great day trip or weekend escape for the whole family.

With an extensive network of challenging 4WD trails, the park is a playground for registered 4WD touring and trail bikes and even has some mountain bike riding opportunities. Your journey will take you through unique mountainous terrain covered with red stringybark and scribbly gums, and across ridgelines with scenic views of the entire Brindabella range.

Breathe in the fresh mountain air and take in the spectacular views from many of the trails. On a clear day, you can see Canberra in the distance and across the Australian Alps to the south.

Visit the historic site at McIntyres Hut. Then take a moment to stop at the picturesque Flea Creek campground and picnic area, great for picnicking, fishing and camping.

**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – **
