Whilst Canberra has much to offer in the way of art, fine dining and our nation's history, you may wish to get even closer to the natural environment. The capital city has many hidden spots to enjoy a picnic, bushwalk or swim.

One such spot is the Cotter Reserve, a favourite picnic area located on the Murrumbidgee River. The reserve offers a massive playground for the kids as well as natural swimming pools, providing hours of fun. On the other hand, enjoy the seven kilometre Kambah Pool to Pine Island walk. About halfway along the trail you can admire the beautiful Red Rock Gorge and take a dip in the nearby swimming hole.

For the more adventurous, Namadgi National Park is the perfect day trip or overnight bushwalk. Located just 45 minutes drive from the heart of the city, the rugged wilderness can be appreciated with the help of ranger-guided walks or self-guided trekking for the more advanced adventurer.
