Canberrans could agree Mount Stromlo has come a long way from the charred landscape left after the 2003 bushfires to the mountain biking mecca it is today.
Now, the ACT government is dreaming even bigger, with eyes for low cost accommodation and a gondola to the mountain top - and maybe a luge all the way back down.
It released a "market sounding" on Saturday to see if there was a business case for such a proposal at the site.
Venues Canberra executive branch manager Liz Clarke said the Stromlo Forest Park currently sees over 160,000 users a year, mainly mountain bikers from Sydney.
It is also home to a cafe and the new aquatic leisure centre site.
But the park was trying to find a way to hook in day tripping visitors for longer.
"We can see an increase in the use of the park, it's just getting them to stay overnight," Ms Clarke said. "If were able to encourage more people to stay overnight ... then it's also benefiting tourism for Canberra."
"The opportunity's probably endless as to what could come back from this exercise."
Government documents said the site could host low cost, short stay accommodation and pointed to developing other outdoor activities.
Ms Clarke said they pictured cabin-style, eco-friendly accommodation to blend in with the landscape.
The documents referenced mountaintop gondolas in New Zealand as well as the Skyline Luge in Sentosa, Singapore which had four tracks to take users downhill.
Ms Clarke said the accommodation could host school groups during the week and outdoor enthusiasts on the weekend.
She said school groups could base themselves at Stromlo before visiting Canberra's national institutions.
Meanwhile, weekend visitors would be able to easily access the mountain all day.
"If they stay over, they'll go to restaurants, they'll look at the national institutions, they could be riding from out here to the [National Arboretum]," Ms Clarke said.
She said the park's existing shuttle service could take visitors across to the mountain bike park in Kowen Forest, or other sites in the capital.
Ms Clarke said the government hadn't allocated any funding for the project, which could also be a partnership with business and the ACT government.
YMCA Canberra chief executive Torrien Lau said developing accommodation for the site was a "no brainer".
Mr Lau said accommodation at Stromlo could be a great chance for school kids to get an outdoors experience in the capital, while still seeing the usual sites.
"There'll be a pool, there's existing bike tracks, it's a known running area," Mr Lau said. "But things that may sit outside that ... that's where it could be a really exciting space for the community to be engaged."
