Ginninderra Falls has historically been an important recreation and education asset to the region and Canberra

Ginninderra Falls

The Falls are on private land and have been closed to the public since 2002 due to operational issues. The falls and the Ginninderra Gorge are now recognised as having high biodiversity values and are important aboriginal cultural heritage sites. As part of the Ginninderry project, the Falls are proposed to be reopened. Activities will be limited by the need to protect biodiversity and cultural values and these in turn will add to the quality and attractiveness of the place. The Falls is expected to be an important asset for conservation, education and recreation.

The Ginninderry project team has been working closely with the Ginninderra Catchment Group, the Ginninderra Falls Association and the Conservation Council of the ACT Region seeking to develop a consensus view on the future of the falls and the immediate surrounding area. The Falls and Gorge is proposed to be (subject to NSW rezoning) incorporated in the Ginninderry Conservation Corridor and owned and managed by the Ginninderry Environmental Management Trust.
