Entry fees return to Tidbinbilla

By johnboy - 25 June 2009 7

In all the long years since the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve was burned out in the 2003 fires it has been free for visitors to enter the scorched surrounds.

TAMS now warns that entry fees are returning to the recovered facility.

For a normal car a day pass from 1 August will be $10, and an annual pass $20, which all seems pretty reasonable.

It’s nice to see this beloved facility gasping back into life.

But remember you can get in for free for the next month, which is nice too!

What’s Your opinion?

I wonder if it’s worth writing a suggestion to their management?

Good luck if you do.

I wrote to them last year after my 4yo got a corker of a black eye from hitting her cheekbone on a monster shackle on the flying fox last year suggesting maybe they could put some plastic protection more than 2-feet up the chain – and that’s the last I heard of it. Although having said that, I haven’t been back to Tidbinbilla to see if they did anything about it.

I love seeing the emus in the wild and the playground there is the best in Canberra I’d say, it’s big, fun and clean

It is a great playground but I do hope they spend some money on a big fence behind the slide to stop kids wondering off and onto that frigging big rock over the back. It’s about a 4 story drop straight down and I’ve seen some very young kids up there. Sure the folks think their kids are happily playing in the playground but they do just wonder off.

I think it’s still worth heading out there, even at $10.

That is an excellent point Berraboy, as friends of ours have temporarily misplaced a few younger kids near that exact spot (they wandered off out of sight) and the rock is a bt dangerous for little ones. I wonder if it’s worth writing a suggestion to their management?

It’s always good to keep an eye out for brown snakes too who come looking for the water in the middle area too, as I understand a kid was bitten last year. It is bushland though so there’s not a lot else you can do about them.

I’d pay triple that if I could see a real, live platypus in the ‘wild’ … we keep searching and searching at Tidbinbilla, but no sightings yet (the staff assure me they are lurking there somewhere!).

A bargain. The ‘billa is lovely, especially the Cascade Trail. A bushwalk, steak sandwiches on the BBQ, a bit of bush tea, and you’ve got a great day out.

Lovely.. I shall have all my kids for the second week of hols and as was trying to think of some cost effective trips out. Ta muchly.

Given I haven’t been and if I like it I shall get a year pass at some point, most reasonable to pay too.
