What ever happened to Ginninderra Falls????

By Thumper - 21 July 2008 22

Ginninderra Falls?

I remember 20 years ago walking down to the falls and hiring canoes to paddle about in the cool, deep waters.

The park featured picnic with tables and barbecues, a nature walk trail and walk down to the river, lookouts, and an animal park. Canoes, kayaks, mountain bikes were available for hire. Abseiling, and canyoning courses we also available.

I know that it is located on private property in NSW but does anyone have any idea why such a beautiful, and accessible place was closed down?

I have a hunch that it may be a public liability matter given that I recall a chopper airlift of an injured person some 10 or so years ago.

Such a shame to see that it is now closed. Will it ever open again? I certainly hope so….

What’s Your opinion?

The illegal part would be the crossing private land to get to the river. Once you are in the river corridor you would be back on public land again.
