Great place to take the Kids for a family BBQ - excellent play equipment.

The Lake is beautiful and offers a number of footpaths to go for a safe walk around.

Lake Canobolas isn't huge, compared to some lakes in National Parks around Australia, but it is beautiful and calm, lined with trees and enjoyed by a number of ducks. It's a particularly beautiful place to visit in Autumn when the leaves are changing colour. There is a kiosk, places for kids to ride their bikes, some play equipment, lots of grass to have a picnic and a lovely spot for a stroll with your loved one. You could spend a good part of the day there and enjoy lunch in the sunshine or under the shade of a tree, or you could just spend 20 minutes driving around part of the lake and stopping for a few photos. A lovely spot for families and couples alike.

Not much to say on Lake Canobolas. It's alright if you're keen on bringing your own fun, but there's not much there to do otherwise.

Spacious grounds and good facilities make this a good place for a family get-together. In autumn the autumn leaves are spectacular.

Lake Canobolas is an oasis in summer, a good alternative over the pool with lots of room to spread out under the trees. The newly installed sandy beach makes getting in and out easy and the pontoons are a meeting place for the young. The kiosk offers excellent coffee and a nice range of snacks ( savoury tarts, fruit bread etc), ice creams etc. flowers in jam jars on the outdoor tables is a nice touch. There are barbecues available and some new shelters adjacent to the waters edge.

But the Lake is beautiful all year round and you'll often have it pretty much to yourself. The circular walking track (half an hour) is not too strenuous and is pretty in all seasons ... And 'refreshing' in winter. Unfortunately no dogs allowed.
