    Canberra Things to Do

    Dear reader – sit down and let me tell you a story – a story of Canberra’s first statue and war memorial. But before I start - while driving by the War Memorial last week (Dec 2014) I noticed that Bellona was missing from her pedestal. I will investigate and update, but once you have read this review you may not be surprised by this latest twist....

  • Pinocchio’s Restaurant

    Canberra Restaurants

    If you are looking for truly cosy restaurant that’s comfortable and has eclectic décor than you can’t go passed Pinocchio’s. Kim and I recently enjoyed a family get together on a cold winter’s night. It’s no surprise that the menu is Italian. This family owned business has been operating for 23 years. The service is excellent and it is refreshing...

    Jervis Bay Transportation

    We drove a sedan and it was ok but if we were to do it again, a four wheel drive would be better. There was only the one way into this destination so I wouldn't advise trying to go there unless you have a four wheeled drive.

  • Service Stations in Jevis Bay

    Jervis Bay Shopping

    Was a service station in Jevis bay. I was looking for gas for a bbg. Was a rip off at $30 a refill compared with $15 in sydney. So make sure you don't run out of gas and if you do, get one of your white friends to buy gas cause if you look like you are from out of town they will rip you off.

  • Huskisson Sunday Markets

    Jervis Bay Things to Do

    Markets at Huskisson every second Sunday of the Month. Held at the main oval. It is easy to get to and close to the main strip of the town. You can find plants, food, and all sorts of nick nacks. All super cheap!


Tidbinbilla Range

  • The Sanctuary Loop – Tidbinbilla Nature...

    Tidbinbilla Range Things to Do

    This is an easy 2.1km wetlands walk (a half loop can be completed) which according to the guide takes 1.5hrs. It can be done in much less than this though do spend a bit of time to enjoy the walk and the sights along the way. You could spend a few hours here. The walk (apart from a couple of very short side detours) is fully sealed, has a number of...

  • Walking in Tidbinbilla

    Tidbinbilla Range Things to Do

    The primary purpose of visiting the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is to enjoy a walk or two or twenty. With very limited efforts the reserve provides you with the opportunity to sight kangaroos, emus, koala's and various other native Australian animals.The pupose of this introductory review is to introduce the walks you can do in to the park and...

  • Sore Neck Walk – Tidbinbilla Nature...

    Tidbinbilla Range Things to Do

    As you may have guessed there is, in fact, no walk in the Reserve with the name Sore Neck though for a country with places like Mount Buggery, Titwobble Lane and many more in a similar vain (see my Australia introduction page for many more) it would not be a surprise if there was. What I refer to as Sore Neck walk is in fact two walks – Koala Path,...


Namadgi National Park

  • Corin Dam

    Namadgi National Park Things to Do

    Canberra has four main sources of water and consequentially four dams. Three of these the Cotter, Bendora and Corin Dams are on the Cotter River, itself little more than a mountain stream, which flows through the western part of Namadgi National Park. Bendora and Corin (the subject of this review) Dams are within the National Park.The Corin Dam, an...

  • Gibraltar Falls

    Namadgi National Park Things to Do

    Gibraltar Falls, one of the highest in the Australian Capital Territory, is a 50m high set of cascading falls in the northern part of Namadgi National Park, best combined with a visit to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve rather than other parts of Namadgi, due to logistics of getting there.The Falls are easily accessed by a short (150m) though rough, rock...

  • Yankee Hat Walk (Paintings)

    Namadgi National Park Things to Do

    The only currently known aboriginal rock art in the ACT is the Yankee Hat paintings in the Gudgenby Valley within Namadgi National Park and about 90 minutes drive from the centre of Canberra. Carbon dating of deposits in the Yankee Hat rock shelter date the site at over 800 yrs old and possibly up to 3700 years old.The artwork is protected by a...

  • Tharwa General Store and School

    Tharwa Things to Do

    The Tharwa General Store is a beautiful old weatherboard building dating back to the 1922. The store was acquired by C.C Jeffery in 1926 and has remained in the family ever since making it one of the Territory’s longest operating family businesses. This is one of those places where you buy a beer, a hot pie and a pair of knickers in the local post...

  • Onyong’s Grave

    Tharwa Things to Do

    I have remarked elsewhere on this page that for a long time before the arrival of European settlers and the 1861 ‘formal settlement’ of Tharwa, Aboriginal people had been using this area as a crossing point for the Murrumbidgee River as they made their way up and down from the mountains. Onyong (a European abbreviation of Allianoyonyiga), a very...

  • St Edmunds Anglican Church

    Tharwa Things to Do

    It is rather refreshing after visiting great cathedrals of Europe or indeed those of larger Australian cities to head out into country Australia and come across little wooden churches, in a popular Carpenter Gothic Style, like St Edmund’s in Tharwa. The Gothic arch windows and door frame and the two crosses on the eaves, while rather plain, give a...
