Mount Majura Nature Reserve is part of the Canberra Nature Park, a series of remnant bush areas of mainly hills and ridges that frame suburban Canberra. The reserve is located in north Canberra and has access from Hackett, Watson and the Federal Highway. Walking trails and multiuse formed roads provide opportunities to explore the reserve.
At 890m, Mount Majura is the highest peak in suburban Canberra.
As part of the Bush on the Boundary program, the Conservation Council in cooperation with the Friends of Mt Majura prepared the following downloadable fact sheets (in pdf format) to provide residents of The Fair, North Watson with information about living next to Mt Majura Nature Reserve.
