Gibraltar Peak

Natural Attractions

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve offers outstanding wildlife and natural experiences. The 8.2 kilometre Gibraltar Peak walking trail is well worth the effort; affording magnificent views from the top.

The most direct route to Gibraltar Peak starts from Dalsetta, passing through open grassland before the climb to Eliza Saddle. From here, the trail traverses for a short distance featuring some fantastic views. After a steep climb, the imposing Gibraltar Peak is reached. Return via the same route or take the longer route via Eliza Saddle, Birrigai Time Trail, the Visitor Centre and Congwarra Trail.

This walk is rated moderate to hard and will take approximately three to four hours return.

Call in at the Tidbinbilla Visitors Centre to check on latest conditions and departure points before embarking on any walk in the National Park. Plan ahead for your walk, don’t rely on a mobile phone and avoid walking alone.

Tidbinbilla is part of the Australian Alps national parks, a series of parks and reserves that span Australia’s south-eastern high country. The Australian Alps are National Heritage listed, recognising that its natural and cultural values are of outstanding national significance.
