Water Activities: During the warm months the Lake offers the opportunity for a swim, paddle in a canoe or for the more adventurous and opportunity for sailing . A sandy beach on the western shoreline near the wall of the dam provides a fun place for kids to swim and play in the sand. Pontoons anchored to the bed of the Lake provide an attraction for teenagers to swim too.
Following extensive rehabilitation work over many years the Lake environs have an abundance of bird life and are home to a number of species of water fowl and native fauna. Keen eyes may occasionally observe a platypus surfacing on the still waters after it has been diving for prey amongst the silty bed of the Lake, or spot an echidna searching for food or a wallaby browsing.
Fishing: You can try your luck anywhere around the Lake. Lake Canobolas has a number of constructed fishing/fly casting facilities, most notably is the fishing deck on the western side of the Lake at the end of the sealed road. This facility has been established with grants from the NSW Government and with the support of the Institute of Freshwater Anglers, Orange Trout Acclimatisation Society and Orange City Council.
Walking/Cycling Trails: At the northern end of the Lake Canobolas Reserve (near the brick toilet buildings) is the start of a shared off road walking and cycling trail, the first stage, which leads to a suspension bridge over Molong Creek, completed as a circuit. Allow approximately 30minutes to walk this section of the track. The suspension bridge was constructed with the assistance of the 1/19th Battalion of the Army Engineers located in Orange.
A large tranquil lake that provides a range of activites with the changing seasons. The Lake is fed by Molong Creek whose waters flow from melting snow and rain that falls on Mt Canobolas and the surrounding Towac Valley.
