Ever dreamed of running workshops among the gum trees? Specifically designed for large groups, from 20 to 180 people, Camp Walaay is a group campground 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.

Conservation program:

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.
