“My favourite thing to do when I'm camping in the Warrumbungles is to lie on my back with my eyes on the stars, they’re magnificent.”
With so many opportunities for walking, rock climbing, picnics and barbecues, Warrumbungle National Park, near Coonabarabran in NSW is a great place to take a weekend break or longer holiday to explore this iconic park.
The Breadknife, easily the most recognisable feature within the park, towers 90m above the valley floor. Hike the Grand High Tops and Breadknife walk for a close up view of this ancient volcanic landscape or choose from one of the other walks in the park. Make sure to take your camera to capture a picture or two.
There are lots of places to camp, including walk-in and vehicle accessible sites, so you are bound to find one that suits your trailer, caravan or tent. Each will be covered by a blanket of stars in the evening, and if you’re lucky, you might see a little brown bat or brush-tailed possum after dark.
