Namadgi National Park has not been mentioned much yet on canberra.bike. After the fires, it has remained closed. The northern and southern tips of the park are now opening again.
Mount Tennent, Honeysuckle Creek and Mount Rob Roy belong to the great hill climbs in the south. Mount Tennent, south of Tharwa, is usually walked but it can be run. Honeysuckle Creek is a popular road ride (the road is currently closed), and Mount Rob Roy a gravel ascent on Banks Steep Track management trail.
Leave Canberra and follow the Tharwa Drive south to the Tharwa Bridge. Mount Rob Roy is to the east and Mount Tennent directly ahead. Continue to the Namadgi National Park and Visitors Centre. The Namadgi National Park is currently closed but it is a pretty trip to Apollo Road. There is no bushfire damage and, after the rains, it is green and lush.
