Mount Nangar walking track to the lookout takes you bushwalking through varied landscapes to scenic views over Nangar National Park and surrounding farmlands in search of wildlife and wildflowers.
For the best view in the park, take Mount Nangar walking track from Dripping Rock out across open country and then up a gentle hill. Following the valley through mugga ironbark and red stringybark woodlands, you’ll come to the plateau of Mount Nangar, where you’re surrounded by mountain heathland. Mount Nangar lookout offers views over open grazing country – on a clear day you can see to Mount Canobolas on the outskirts of Orange. Along the escarpment, birdwatchers may see peregrine or brown falcons and wedge-tailed eagles.
As well as fabulous scenic views and wildlife, there is a lovely variety of plants on this walk. Look out for rusty spider flower and nodding blue lily. You may also see delicate orchids – take care not to disturb these beautiful flowers.
