I'm not sure that free range wandering is encouraged- at least it wasn't when I tried with a phone call to the Golf Club to a year or so back.
However, every month, on the second Sunday, a small group walk is held - arranged, I think, by keen ex members of either Forestry ,or Yarrumlumla Nursery. 
Meet informally at the Gulf Club main entrance at 9.30 am. Ive been once (didnt see many birds, but learnt a lot about trees) and will go again- well worth while- lasts 1-2 hrs.

Westbourne Woods seen from Warrina Inlet.  The Woods, one of the  sites  of experimental plantings of exotic trees, are the setting for the manicured fairways of Royal Canberra Golf Club, and, near the  lake, a playground for large numbers of  indigo Swamphens.  Yellow-tailed Blacks frequenty raid the conifers.  I am told that ordinary pedestrians may wander among the birdy-seeking gynecologists and diplomats provided their purpose is at least incidentally ‘tree study’ – a test that surely qualifies the average Canberra stroller.
