Gunneemooroo campground is a picturesque campground set in the shadows of Mount Naman. Located in the southern part of Warrumbungle National Park, it’s a remote bushland setting where tranquility and a relaxing outback retreat awaits.
Collect the key for the gate at the visitor centre and then you’ll be on your way to this peaceful back-to-basics campground. Find a campsite, then wander down to the nearby creek to explore.
After a day immersed in nature, sit back and savour the flavours of hot tucker around the campfire (fire bans may be in place). Step away from the warmth of the fire to enjoy stargazing and be mesmerised by the abundance of stars sprayed across the night sky. You might also hear the sounds of boobook owls in the trees and tawny frogmouths from the nearby creek.
Warrumbungle National Park is Australia's first Dark Sky Park, renowned for its crystal clear starry skies. Learn more about Dark Sky Parks and why they're special.
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.
