Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area Draft Plan of Management

Roger Lembit, Convenor, Parks Management Committee

NPA has completed its submission on the draft Plan of Management for Mount Canobolas SCA published by NPWS.

Mount Canobolas State Conservation Reserve is a significant reserve in Central Western New South Wales. It is an important feature of the Orange District and brings economic benefits, including tourism. Its highest value, however, is for nature conservation. An extinct volcano, Mount Canobolas stands out in the landscape, being one of few subalpine ecosystems in central NSW. It supports a wide range of rare and restricted species, with the combination of the geology, location, altitude and biodiversity making it a unique natural wonder.
