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.
