“After the sun sets, Canberra’s bush is a completely different experience from anything you can witness during the day time. Tidbinbilla comes to life after dark. As we settle in for thenight, a lot of our native nocturnal critters are out and about, ready for the day.
“While Tidbinbilla’s rocky mountain ringed landscape is stunning during the day, it is also breathtaking at night. Arrive early for your own sunset picnic and see the park under a different light before heading out for a guided tour under the stars.
