About the region

Uriarra Crossing and Swamp Creek are located in a 2km area, close to where Uriarra Road crosses the magnificent Murrumbidgee River, and are accessed off the Uriarra Road. They are great spots for shady river-side picnicking. On hot summer days you will find many Canberrans enjoying the easy access to the river, lovely swimming spots and picnic areas. On cooler days you can light a fire in one of the many wood-fired barbecues and enjoy the views of the Murrumbidgee. Fishing and canoeing are also popular activities. Or take one of a range of short walks along the river, including walking up to the confluence of the Molonglo and Murrumbidgee Rivers.

Getting there

Located 25 minutes north west of Canberra city centre, accessed off Uriarra Road.
