  • Sites are not marked
  • Mount Canobolas is always a few degrees cooler than the surrounding region, so it’s a good idea to bring warm clothing, even in summer.
  • Be sure to check the weather and road conditions if you’re camping during winter. It can snow in the area and the roads within Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area are closed by locked gates during times of snow, usually occurring two or three times per year. Road closures normally last for three to four days, however might last for up to two weeks. It is not advisable to camp when snow is predicted.

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, and it’s completely free to camp here.

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.
