A diverse and dynamic floodplain landscape and wetland resource, inspiring the community to enjoy and appreciate its natural and cultural values, and to participate actively in its care and management.

Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve is one of the most valuable wetland habitat areas in the ACT, and of national and international importance. A refuge for migrating birds from the northern hemisphere and inland Australia, Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve is part of Canberra Nature Park, and is located on the Molonglo River floodplain only four kilometres from Canberra’s City centre.

Take a stroll through the wetlands and discover a unique array of wetland and terrestrial habitats, remnants of the wetland’s agricultural origins, and learn about the ecology of this precious place. Pathways and bird hides will help you discover the delights of wildlife watching.

The Jerrabomberra Wetlands Management Committee helps the ACT Government manage the Wetlands.  It is constituted by the Capital Woodlands and Wetlands Conservation Trust Board which also helps manage the Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary.
