Read more about Goobang National Park

Goobang National Park, near Parkes and Dubbo, is a central NSW gem. Whether you’re exploring the park by car, mountain bike, or going on a bushwalk, there’s so much to see. Be sure to pack your binoculars if you like birdwatching as there are loads of species to spot, from owls and eagles to parrots and small wrens.

If you’re staying at one of the idyllic bush campsites, with their friendly and relaxed feel, you’re likely to encounter many of the park’s other inhabitants. Red-necked wallabies, swamp wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos and echidnas may be seen all year round.

During the sunlit days of spring and summer, reptiles are on the move. Keep an eye out for lace monitors, blue-tongued lizards, shingle backs and bearded dragons. There have even been sightings of koalas in the quieter areas of the park. At night, boobook owls, nightjars, possums, bats, and a variety of frogs can be heard calling or scurrying about.
