A nature wonderland, this walk-in campground attracts wildlife and birdwatching enthusiasts from all over the world. Located near the Warrumbungle Visitor Centre, Camp Pincham is a great base for walking and exploring in the iconic Warrumbungles, near Coonabarabran.

Settle in to your campsite, boil the billy, and plan your exploration. Head up Fans Horizon walking track to the lookout, you’ll get great views over the ‘crooked’ mountains. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the challenging Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk.

This park erupts in a riot of colour and scent when wildflowers blanket the heaths in spring. You might see and smell fragrant boronia, sticky daisy, and vibrant bacon and egg peas. Orchids are also found throughout the park.

At night, back at the campground, cook up a barbecue and settle in for the symphony of the bush. You might hear the common dunnart or yellow-footed marsupial mouse rustling around your tent.

Conservation program:

Warrumbungle National Park after-fire program

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