Tinderry Nature Reserve

Open, check current alerts 


Tinderry Nature Reserve was created in January 1981. It covers an area of 14711ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

The highest and most spectacular section of the Tinderry Range forms the backbone of this Southern Tablelands nature reserve. The range, characterised by huge granite monoliths and dominated by Tinderry and Tinderry Twin peaks, rises abruptly from cleared and undulating hills east of Michelago. From the highest point of Tinderry Peak it drops gradually eastward to remote sections of the Queanbeyan River, which forms the eastern boundary of the reserve.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
