Whether you’re into camping, walking, birdwatching, or even astronomy, Warrumbungle National Park, near Coonabarabran in NSW, is a great place for a weekend getaway or longer holiday.

Most recently, the 2013 wildfires marked yet another chapter in this great park’s history. Although there are fewer facilities for you to enjoy now as a result of these fires, the NPWS is working hard to rebuild its facilities for generations to come. And, as the walking tracks, campgrounds and other visitor sites are rebuilt on the ground, you’ll find out about them here, so be sure to check back regularly.

What hasn’t changed since the fires? The Breadknife, easily the most recognisable feature within the park, still towers 90m above the valley floor, and is a symbol of the park’s enduring importance and resilience.
