Solid, sometimes exploding Arapiles rock, adventurous approaches and an isolated feel make this a unique place
A region of rock extending from Bendora Dam through to Mt Tidbinbilla, with numerous cliffs that are bigger and further away than it first appears. There are few recorded ascents and plenty of potential for adventure.
Most of this area is in Canberra's water catchment. Climbing is allowed, but camping is not.
Drive to Picadilly Circus, turn left towards Mt Franklin, then left again to drop down to Bendora Dam. If you don't mind bumpy, windy dirt roads, it's about an hour's drive from Canberra.
