Hike Summary

Take an easy stroll through the snowgum forest of Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area along Snowgum walking track. It's a short walk that you can start at the summit of Mount Canobolas or from Federal Falls campground if you'd like a more challenging walk.
You're bound to be impressed by the beautiful snowgums that line this scenic walk, their branches making an intricate pattern above you. They make a lovely canopy to sit underneath on a hot day and during winter when snow sometimes falls, it's like an Australian white Christmas.
The walk is generally fairly easy, so a good one for children, however it does become a little steeper on the approach to Federal Falls campground.

About the region

Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area offers birdwatching, walking, scenic views, pretty picnic areas and a great campground; a top choice for a weekend getaway. 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.

Getting there

On entering Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area, follow Mount Canobolas Road all the way to the summit of Mount Canobolas. Alternatively, you can turn right on Towac Road to reach Federal Falls campground. Road quality Roads may close when it snows (generally once or twice each winter). Parking Parking is available at the summit of Mount Canobolas and at Federal Falls campground
