Read more about Conimbla National Park

A short drive from Cowra and Grenfell, Conimbla National Park is a quiet, tranquil nature reserve where you can enjoy easy, peaceful bushwalks amid rugged hills and farming country.

Yambira mountain and its surrounding forested ranges rise nearly 500m above the plain, forming a 'bush island' amid the central west farmlands. Rock ledges and small waterfalls have formed along some of the creek-lines. There is a large diversity of orchids in the park, including the only known population of the midge orchid, while many flowering shrubs brighten the landscape in spring, like flax lily, gold dust wattle, seven dwarf’s grevillea, myrtles, hill indigo, bitter peas, and grass trees.

The park is particularly popular with keen birdwatchers, as over 150 species have been recorded here, including some interesting threatened species, such as the little eagle, glossy black-cockatoo, turquoise parrot and several species of honeyeaters and robins.

Mammals you may see here include eastern grey kangaroos, wallaroos, swamp wallabies, little red flying foxes, brush-tailed possums, and the threatened pygmy possum and squirrel glider. Kangaroos and wallabies are often seen throughout the day, but the possums and gliders are best seen at night.

With limited visitors to this huge, untapped natural place, you can sometimes find that you have the entire 7,965ha of park entirely to yourself.
