Quite a pretty bike ride destination. Nice views of Canberra at the top but quite a hill to get up.

It's about remembering the 2003 fires and learning about how things grow. Fab views of Canberra. There's also a magic cork forest ..

This is a tree botanic gardens that is still relatively new to Canberra and has many years before the trees planted reach any sort of maturity. Go have lunch or coffee and visit the Bonsai Garden or Display Vegetable gardens. Fly a kite and walk or ride all over the Park.
