The Koala Path - Tidnbinbilla Nature Reserve, Canberra









These images were taken on a return trip to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve - a 54.5 square kilometre protected area, on the fringe of Namadgi National Park.

Located in the Eucalypt Forest, the Koala Path is 700m (taking about 20 minutes) and the Peppermint Trail is 1.8km (taking about 45 minutes and follows on from the Koala Path). A gravel track winds its way through the tall eucalypt trees and across crystal clear Mountain Creek. Though we looked out for koalas as we took a short stroll through the wet eucalypt forest we didn't see any apart from those in the enclosure.

The area is also home to wombats, wallabies, echidnas, potoroos and many species of birds and reptiles... we did see some swamp wallabies and I managed to snap one hiding behind a tree. More photographs can be seen on my flickr photostream - here.
