Corin Forest

Corin Forest is a year round recreation facility with an emphasis on mountain sports and activities located just 45 minutes drive from Parliament House, Canberra, on an all sealed road.

Corin Forest is open weekends, public holidays and A.C.T. school holidays at 10 am until 4 pm (weekends and public holidays), and 4 pm on weekdays in the school holidays.

In any environment, people of any age would greatly enjoy these exciting, world-class rides, but located in Corin Forest's natural, Australian mountain bushland setting, they become a unique and unforgettable experience.

Many people, however, come to Corin just to enjoy the wonderful Australian bush setting. The grassy verges of a tranquil pond, formed on a permanent stream, is the perfect spot for picnicking, and our Cafe overlooking the pond offers refreshments together with normal amenities. In winter the Cafe has a roaring open fire, creating a cosy atmosphere
