Mount Nangar lookout

As well as giving you terrific scenic views across the farming country of central west New South Wales, spending time at Mount Nangar lookout offers a sense of the importance of this conserved area of bushland. The wooded hills and ridge make a dramatic contrast with the endless fields and provide an important refuge for the resident kangaroos, wallabies, bats and birdlife.

You can take Mount Nangar hiking track down to Dripping Rock from the lookout, through valleys of mugga ironbark and red stringybark woodlands. In spring, you’ll see a variety of delicate wildflowers and while birdwatching, you may catch sight of peregrine or brown falcons and wedge-tailed eagles soaring above the ridge line. Bring your camera – the scenery is varied and the views dramatic.
