The majestic Mount Canobolas is a dormant volcano that formed millions of years ago when Australia was sitting over a hotspot in the earth's crust. It is part of the Brigooda-Oberon chain that stretches 800km from southeast Queensland to near Oberon in NSW and last erupted eleven million years ago, spewing lava from the main vent and up to 30 vents in the surrounding area. With its rich soil, high altitude and cool climate, it's the perfect environment for a range of plants and animals.
It sits 1395m above sea level. Despite the area’s melancholy history involving tragic deaths, a brutal murder, and rumors of witches. The area is enjoyed by many: swimmers still go for a paddle in the lake, intrepid trekkers tramp through the forest, cyclists ride the by ways and drivers navigate the twists and turns to the top of Mount Canobolas to take in the views that, on a clear day, can stretch from the Warrumbungle’s to the Blue Mountains.
