Located a short drive from Canberra's CBD, the Brindabella Range, commonly called The Brindabellas, is a mountain range that separates New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) on Ngunnawal Country. The range rises to the west of Australia's capital city Canberra. It includes the Namadgi National Park in the ACT and the Bimberi Nature Reserve and Brindabella National Park in New South Wales. The Brindabellas are visible to the west of Canberra and form an essential part of the city's landscape.

The Brindabella Range is a mountain range located in southeastern Australia on the traditional land of the Ngunnawal people. Part of the Australian Alps, the 'Brindabellas' run along the border between the Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales.

The Brindabella Range is a popular destination for hikers and nature lovers, as it offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including the Australian Alps and the Murrumbidgee River. The range is also home to diverse flora and fauna, including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, and various bird species.

For the Ngunnawal people, the Brindabella Range holds great cultural significance as a place of spiritual importance. The range is believed to be home to ancestral spirits and is considered a sacred site for ceremonies and gatherings.

The Brindabella Range has faced threats from climate change, bushfires, and human activities such as logging and grazing in recent years. Efforts are underway to protect and preserve the range for future generations and ensure its cultural and ecological values are respected and maintained.

The Brindabellas offer a great range of outdoor activities from 4WD, bush walking, fishing, horse riding, canoeing, mountain biking (MTB), and camping to enjoying Australia's great sub-alpine region. Great sites to visit include Mt Corree, Flea Creek and McIntyres Hut.

The Brindabellas can be easily accessed from the ACT from either the Molongolo Valley or Tuggeranong.
