Set on the banks of the tranquil Wambelong Creek with spectacular views of Belougery Split Rock, Camp Wambelong is the perfect spot to unwind and immerse yourself in nature. It's an ideal base for you to explore the network of walking and bike riding trails of the Warrumbungles.

With three walking tracks starting right here, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Pack a backpack and head off to enjoy the sights along Belougery Split Rock circuit, Burbie Canyon walking track, or Mount Exmouth walking track.

Or simply sit back and enjoy the tranquillity of this remote camping spot. Keep your eyes out for a group of passing kangaroos or wallabies and listen carefully for the sounds of pobblebonk frogs set amongst the chorus of birdsong. You could even try your luck fishing or yabbying in the nearby creek.

Conservation program:

After-fire Warrumbungle National Park

The bushfires that ravaged Warrumbungle National Park in 2013 have become the focus of a major research and recovery program by NSW National Parks. The program has multiple components including studies on fire behaviour, cultural heritage, soils and water, native Australian animals, vegetation and fire management, and will include citizen science.
