While adventuring in and around Canberra, make your way to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. The word ‘Tidbinbilla’ comes from Aboriginal’s word ‘Jedbinbilla’ meaning a place where boys become men. With a variety of Aboriginal artefacts to discover and native bushland and Australian animals to come face to face with, there’s plenty to see here! The nature reserve is teeming with Indigenous history. Walk or ride through the parklands and discover a piece of the past.
There are only two known sites of Aboriginal rock art in Canberra but more are rumoured to be buried beneath the city. Visit Namadgi National Park for Aboriginal rock art, drawn by the local Indigenous tribes thousands of years ago. The work is believed to be the art of the Ngunnawal peoples whose ancestors still maintain the site today. Learn their story by paying the park a visit.
