Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area - Orange
Mount Canobolas is an ancient volcano, stands 1395 metres above sea level. The highest peak between the Blue Mountains and the Indian Ocean. A stunning 360-degree view encompasses the city of Orange, the rolling countryside and the Blue Mountains in the distance. It is often capped with snow, making the view even more spectacular.
Birdwatchers will enjoy seeing rosellas, cockatoos, parrots, lorikeets and robins, whilst grey kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and small possums can be found. A series of walking trails have been created to take you around the reserve and mountain attractions like the Federal Falls, Mount Towac, Bald Hill and Young Man Canobolas. Picnic and barbecue facilities are available in the park and toilets can be found near the main entrance.
