A bit of info on these parks
Bimberi Wilderness Area runs along the West of the ACT in the Brindabella Mountains. A very rugged walking area. Mt Ginini summit is accessable by road, the others are long walks...

Woodstock, Swamp Creek, Stony Creek, Bullen Range and Gigerline are a chain of reserves along the Murrumbidgee river corridor. See

Being close to Canberra all pretty easy to reach. If you want to climb the Bullen Range and do the SOTA peak you have a 5 Km walk though...

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is well known, it even has its own website
Note there is a park entry fee for this reserve. The 2 peaks Tidbinbilla Peak and Mt Domain are very hard walks, Tidbinbilla Peak has yet to be activated.
