National Parks

Namadgi National Park is situated just south of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. For travellers between Cooma and Canberra Namadgi provides a rewarding scenic detour through majestic mountain terrain.

The park sits on the northern end of the Australian Alps with snowfalls likely in the winter months, mainly on the higher areas of the Brindabella and Bimberi Ranges.

Namadgi has a wide variety of flora and fauna in habitats ranging from grassy green valleys to stunning mountains shrouded with snow gums and bold granite outcrops. Kangaroos, wallabies, and wombats can be seen throughout the park. Commonly seen birds include magpies, crimson rosellas, pied currawongs, Australian Ravens and the spotted quail-thrush.

Aboriginal paintings which were painted over a period of hundreds or possibly thousands of years can be seen at Yankee Hat Rock. The close grouping of art and ceremonial sites in the Namadgi ranges suggests this area was of special significance to Aboriginal people.

170 km of marked walking trails cover the park allowing Bushwalkers to really appreciate the beauty of Namadgi. Stunning wilderness await the more experienced bushwalker prepared to venture into the remote areas of the park. All parties planning to visit the remote areas should be well prepared and record details of their trip in the bushwalking registers located at the visitor centre and elsewhere in the park.

Camping grounds with toilets are located at Orroral and Mt Clear. There is a three night limit and bookings may be made at the Visitor Centre. Picnic areas are located beside most roads some with fireplaces and toilets.
