Goobang is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 296 km northwest of Sydney. It protects the largest remnant forest and woodland in the central west region of the state, where interior and coastal NSW flora and fauna species overlap. Originally named Hervey Range by John Oxley in 1817, the area was reserved in 1897 as state forest because of its importance as a timber resource, and was designated a national park in 1995.
The park contains a camping ground and a hiking trail, Burrabadine Peak Walking Track, a 3.6 km round trip moderate hike.
