Just a short drive from Canberra, Brindabella National Park offers a remote alpine bush experience, a great day trip or weekend escape for the whole family.

With an extensive network of challenging 4WD trails, the park is an excellent location for registered 4WD touring and trail bikes and even has some mountain bike riding opportunities. Your journey will take you through unique mountainous terrain covered with red stringybark and scribbly gums, and across ridgelines with scenic views of the entire Brindabella range.

Breathe in the fresh mountain air and take in the spectacular views from many of the trails. On a clear day, you can see Canberra in the distance and across the Australian Alps to the south.

Visit the historic site at McIntyres Hut. Then take a moment to stop at the picturesque Flea Creek campground and picnic area, great for picnicking, fishing and camping.
