Federal Falls campground is a great place to relax, enjoy the surrounds and explore Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area. It’s close to some of the park’s walking tracks, including Federal Falls walk and Snowgum track.
When you’re worn out from a day in the park, you can relax as the evening comes alive; with thousands of stars igniting the night sky and the park’s nocturnal animals awakening. In the morning you’ll be awoken by birds as they sing and dart between the majestic white gums that surround this campground.
This is the location of an ancient Aboriginal campsite; be sure to check out the interpretive display to find out more about the Wiradjuri People’s connection to this stunning Country.
