ENTRY fees for Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve from tomorrow until the end of 2020 have been suspended to encourage visitors to return to the park.
Parts of the park were closed earlier in the year following the Orroral Valley Bushfire.
The Cascades and Lyrebird trails have new viewing platforms, and the Sanctuary and Ribbon Gum Theatre paths have been revamped and repainted.
The koala enclosure has been upgraded and now includes new logs and trees for the koalas to lounge on. A new viewing platform and clear fencing has been added.
Late winter is also the best time to spot the elusive platypus as they spend more time feeding and the males are out preparing for the breeding season.
Nil Desperandum Homestead and walking trail are being upgraded and will remain closed until further notice. All other areas of the reserve are open.
