Conservation Volunteering – Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve


Every Monday our Better Earth volunteer team heads out to Tidbinbilla to assist our Park Rangers with essential conservation projects.

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is a wonderful local protected area, on the fringe of Namadgi National Park. It is a short drive from the city of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory, the capital city of Australia. The nature reserve consists of a large valley floor, the Tidbinbilla Mountain and the Gibraltar range. The sides of the valley are steep and relatively undisturbed; the lower slopes are partly cleared and have a history of Aboriginal and European use.  The word ‘Tidbinbilla’ is Aboriginal in origin and is derived from the word Jedbinbilla – a place where boys become men.

Come join us for a day of varied conservation activities in some beautiful surroundings!
