The proposed conservation corridor encompasses areas of habitat for the endangered Pink tail Worm Lizard and Yellow Box Red Gum woodland. The corridor adjoins both the Murrumbidgee River and Ginninderra Creek and includes a total area of 596ha (390ha in the ACT and 206ha in NSW).

The corridor will include about 6km of Murrumbidgee River frontage and the length of the Ginninderra Creek from the suburb of West Macgregor to its confluence with the Murrumbidgee – including the Ginninderra Falls and Gorge.

The creation of this reserve will mean that the Ginninderra Creek corridor, which commences at Mulligans Flat in Gungahlin and extends through Gungahlin and Belconnen, will be linked to the Murrumbidgee River which in turn connects to the Molonglo and upstream Murrumbidgee corridors.
