Woods Reserve on Corin Road - Canberra

I decided to spend my birthday eve at a nearby campground I had overlooked all my life. Just another year until a passing thought reminded me that the next time I need renew my driver's license I will be 60.

Named after Edward and Julie Woods who are simply described as two 1880s settlers in the area. A small stone cairn bears a plaque.

The campground is a 30 minute drive from the southern suburbs of Canberra via Point Hut Crossing  Tidbinbilla Road and Corin Road. The amenities are first class as far as this happy camper is concerned with heaps of leveled campsites with firepit and bench table and nearby parking.

There are two blocks containing well maintained flush toilets with one set having a single shower (male and female.) And a disabled toilet with shower.

Lyrebirds, brushtailed possums, kangaroos, red necked wallabies seem somewhat oblivious to the human activity with the possums warily approaching the campfire as they pass through. For those a bit fitter there is a walking tail climbing up to Gibraltar Falls.

For those seeking a quick escape from society, the phone and internet as I do I can't recomend this little campground highly enough. Well done ACT Government.
