Closed parks: Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area closed

All areas of this park, except for the summit of Mount Canobolas, are closed because of the effects of bushfire. The park experienced a major bushfire in February 2018, and there is a danger of falling trees and branches over the coming months. A large amount of walking track infrastructure has also been damaged. It will take some time to improve visitor safety and repair walking track infrastructure. Visitors are welcome at the summit of Mount Canobolas, but should not enter burnt areas of the park, including the walking tracks. 

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service will reassess the closure in late December 2018.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, please contact the NPWS Bathurst area office on (02) 6332 7640 or visit the NSW National Parks safety page for park safety guidelines.
