A temporary visitor centre will open to visitors today at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve to provide enhanced customer service and experience.

Executive Branch Manager of the ACT Parks and Conservation Service, Stephen Alegria said the building has been installed following the permanent closure of the Visitor Centre last year.

“The ACT Government installed a new demountable building at the entrance to the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. We are very pleased that visitors can once again have an opportunity to chat to our staff in person about the many walks and activities on offer at this beautiful reserve,” Mr Alegria said.

“ACT Parks and Conservation Service visitor staff will be available over the school holidays to welcome visitors to the reserve and provide advice, brochures, maps, and first aid equipment in the event of an emergency.

“Wi-Fi is available inside and immediately outside the building, and there are accessible public toilets.

“The temporary visitor centre will also support the many wonderful volunteers that add so much value to the visitor experience at Tidbinbilla. Autumn is a great time to visit Tidbinbilla and experience the abundant wildlife, walking and picnicking opportunities on offer.

“Entry to Tidbinbilla remains free until further notice and the boom gate will remain open from 7:30am until 6:00pm.

"Planning is underway for a new permanent Tidbinbilla Visitor Centre. In the meantime, the temporary building is expected to continue providing visitor services for the foreseeable future.
