Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area

Home  -  Things to doWalks, Trails & Bike Tracks

The majestic Mount Canobolas is a dormant volcano that formed millions of years ago when Australia was sitting over a hotspot in the earth's crust. It is part of the Brigooda-Oberon chain that stretches 800km from southeast Queensland to near Oberon in NSW and last erupted eleven million years ago, spewing lava from the main vent and up to 30 vents in the surrounding area. With its rich soil, high altitude and cool climate, it's the perfect environment for a range of plants and animals.

There are great places to picnic and a number of walking tracks, plus the park is only a short drive from Orange so it makes for a great daytrip. If you feel like a weekend getaway, there's also a campground that offers basic facilities in a pretty setting, right near the start of the Federal Falls walking track.
