Ever dreamed of running workshops among the gum trees? Specifically designed for large groups, from 20 to 180 people, Camp Walaay is a campground that's ideal for school groups, conferences and educational workshops in the heart of Warrumbungle National Park. The adjacent classrooms at Warrumbungle Environmental Education Centre facility make it a great location for specific activities with an educational, environmental, or cultural focus.

When class is finished, there’s a range of nearby walking tracks to enjoy. At night, after a barbecue feast, everyone can gather around the campfire for singalongs and stories, or stargaze together. If you hear a rustle in the darkness, it might be a curious yellow-footed marsupial mouse.

Take a virtual tour of Camp Walaay captured with Google Street View Trekker.

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.
