Riding in the bush in Canberra

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.

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.
