Please note
Because of the altitude, the weather can change quite quickly. You should always check the weather forecast before setting out for a walk. It's advisable to bring a jumper with you, and in winter always bring a raincoat and warm clothing.

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.
