Welcome to Namadgi National Park. Named after the Aboriginal word for the mountain ranges in the south-west of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Namadgi National Park was declared in 1984. The park covers over 106,095 hectares of the ACT and contains more than 160 kilometres of marked walking trails. In Namadgi National Park you can experience Aboriginal and European history, beautiful camping sites, an abundance of native wildlife and many bushwalking trails through a range of unique natural environments. Namadgi National Park is also the beginning of the Australian Alps Walking track which starts at the Namadgi Visitor Centre and snakes its way through the Australian Alps. The track end at Walhalla in Victoria after a total of 655 kilometres.

It took us just over three hours to walk the short loop. We saw kangaroos, wallabies and yes a rather large spider. Stick to the trails and bring water, plus a snack. Definitely worth the effort to get there.

Come here and complete some of the walking trails that vary in degrees of difficulty. Go to the visitor centre first to get some maps and any advice you need. When you go to Namadgi you realise why Canberra really is the "bush capital".

Incredible National Park with hundreds of different areas to explore and impossible to visit in one day (may in one week). You can find from cascades to explorer shacks to rainbow eucalyptus ... It deserves a visit.

Yep, those answers are all correct. NNP is free and open all the time, however some of the access roads are closed from time-to-time if there are hazards.
