Kangaroos, potoroos, wallaroos, oh my!


Our Research School of Economics (RSE) students were welcomed by some of Australia’s native wildlife as they were guided through the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve on 13 April 2018 giving them a rare opportunity to see some of Canberra’s wildlife in their natural habitat. Our students were spoiled for choice as native rock wallaby’s, turtles, potoroos and an array of native birds popped their heads out to say G’day with the highlight being an up-close experience of the Rangers feeding the koalas in the Koala Enclosure. Did we mention there was a baby koala? 

Our students received a guided tour of the reserve as well as an insight into Canberra’s history and how it came to be the Capital of Australia, as well as information on the traditional owners of our land and their way of life prior to and during the early years of European settlement. This trip was a rare opportunity for those who are new to Canberra to be guided through one of Australia’s most beautiful natural habitats.

RSE looks forward to sharing more unique experiences with our students and proving that Canberra is not only the most liveable city but also an exciting one!
