Riding in the bush in Canberra

We live in a city but in Canberra we can pretend that we do not.

Canberra Nature Park makes it possible to ride through a network of reserves that are interconnected without ever crossing a major road. One of these areas is in the south east of Canberra.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

There is an area bound by four major roads but with no roads in between:

  • Hindmarsh Drive in the north
  • Long Gully Road/Mugga Lane in the south
  • Yamba Drive in the east
  • Monaro Highway in the west.

You will find several interconnnected reserves:

  • Jerrabomberra West Grasslands Nature Reserve
  • Callum Brae Nature Reserve
  • Mount Mugga Mugga Nature Reserve
  • Isaacs Ridge Nature Reserve
  • Long Gully Pine Plantation.

Canberra.bike will review each separately, and Long Gully Pine Plantation will be reviewed first.
