Pleasant day trip from the city. Take a picnic and enjoy some bush walking and fresh air. There are bush toilets and limited tank water. There are information panels on the once Honey Suckle Creek tracking station site. It was built by NASA to support the Apollo missions to send man to the moon. HSC played a significant role in...

The walking track is an easy, level terrain& quite do-able for any age group. The "locals" consisted of wombats, Roos & extensive bird life, as well as tranquil bush. A welcome BBQ at the facilities was the perfect end to our day! Can't wait for a return visit.

Namadgi is a fabulous national park with picnic spots and walks from a few hundred metres to kilometrs. Aboriginal painting site is very special. VIC very interesting

We started our walk from the smokers car park (just a few metres up from the bobbin slide car park area) and it took less than an hour each way. It was less strenuous as the climb up/down is minimal. There are flora & fauna to look all along the way (lizards & wild flowers as in pic). Carry water... More

You need to do a little bit of research to find the turnoff to the carpark for this walk as the signposts are not that clear. Once you turn off the main road you follow a gravel road that passes through a couple of low creek crossings to arrive at the carpark. The walk to Yankee Hat is clearly marked,... More

Beautiful park with some really worthwhile walks. If you go during the week, you'll have it all to yourselves! Less than an hour's drive from Canberra, too.

There are a number of great trails of different levels of difficulty. It has some excellent picnic locations. Make sure you take all your rubbish with you once done to maintain the pristine nature of the surroundings.

We (me, wife, 14 yo son) climbed to the top of Booroomba Rocks. The climb is approx 200 of elevation over about a 1.2km trip (one way). This is not an insignificant gradient and an average level of fitness is required. The track is well marked one you are on it, but be careful to start on the right track.... More
