Goobang National Park provides protection for the diverse range of plant and animal communities found in central west NSW, as well as the rich scenic, cultural and natural features of the area.
It is approximately 42,600 hectares in size, 55 kilometres long and ranges in width from 200 metres to 20 kilometres, forming the largest area of remnant vegetation in the Central West of New South Wales.
Over 300 plant species have been recorded in the park, including 40 species of orchids.
Goobang National Park can be accessed via a number of roads, including the Tomingley-Yeoval Road in the north, the Parkes-Manildra Road in the south and from Peak Hill along the Baldry Road in the centre.
The park includes the Herveys, Currumbenya and Bumberry Mountain Ranges and surrounding valleys.
Visitors can go picnicking, bird watching, walking, photography and bush camping in the park. If you plan on horse riding in the park, you'll need a permit.
The park's main trails are accessible to 2WD vehicles, however they can become very boggy after heavy rain. Caloma Trig lookout offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.
