Also known as Burbie Springs, this walk-in campground is a great stopover on a longer hike or perfect for a weekend of wildlife spotting and birdwatching. Accessed on foot along Burbie Canyon track and Burbie trail, Burbie Camp is located between iconic Mount Exmouth and Belougery Split Rock, in Warrumbungle National Park.

When you arrive at your rustic campsite, take in the rugged mountain views and crystal clear air. Inhale deeply and savour the spicy cocktail scent of cypress pine, eucalypts, and the sticky daisy bush. At dusk, you might catch a glimpse of a swamp wallaby, red-necked wallaby, or wallaroo. The sight of a majestic wedge-tailed eagle soaring high on the cliff thermals is an inspiring sight which adds to the atmosphere. The Warrumbungles are famous for the darkness of its night skies, so when the sun goes down, settle back for an evening of stargazing.

Warrumbungle National Park after-fire program

The 2013 bushfires were the largest and most intense on record for Warrumbungle National Park. Almost 90 per cent of the park was burnt, but conservation programs and research have helped us better understand the impact of fire and how the park has recovered.
