This well-equipped campground, suitable for caravans, camper trailers, motor homes and tents, is a fantastic place to get away with family and friends. Camp Blackman can be a popular place during school holidays, so in addition to lots of kangaroos, sulphur crested cockatoos, white-winged choughs, kookaburras and butcher birds, there are bound to be lots of family groups.

Your campsite won’t be far from some of the parks walking and cycling tracks, make sure to take your bikes and walking shoes so you can explore. If you’re visiting in spring, you might be treated to the sight and smell of the wildflowers that line the tracks, like western golden wattle, smooth darling pea and kangaroo thorn. Don’t forget to drop by the visitor centre to book your guided Discovery tour.

After your adventures in Warrumbungle National Park, you can return to Camp Blackman for a hot shower, tasty barbecue and settle to see the evening stars.
