In Goobang National Park, enjoy 4 x 4 wheel driving, camping, hiking and mountain biking. This national park lies along one of nature's border zones. It occurs over an area where the wildlife of the coast and ranges gives way to the plants and animals typical of the drier inland countryside, with abundant birds and wildlife.
Surveyor Major Mitchell crossed the Goobang's Hervey Ranges in 1835. He wrote:
"On passing through to the western side, I recognise the trees, plants and birds of the interior regions. Granitic hills appeared on each side, and the sweet smelling callitris (cypress pine) grew around, with many a curious shrub never seen to the eastwards of these ranges.
Enjoy a truly unique experience which offers the peace and tranquility of the Australian bush. The closest access point to the National Park south of Peak Hill is Baldry Peak Hill Road and on the Northern end Gundong Road, just north of Tomingly, Camping is available at Greenbah Creek and Wanda Wandong.
