The short Whitegum lookout walking track is a must if you’re travelling with kids or looking for an access-friendly walk. Starting from Whitegum lookout carpark, the path winds 500m through serene bushland to Whitegum lookout where you can enjoy views across the Warrumbungle skyline and Central Valley below.
With just a slight incline, the sealed path is suitable for prams and wheelchairs and is a great opportunity for everyone to experience spectacular views. It only takes 30 minutes to make the return trip, but you’ll likely want to spend much longer admiring Warrumbungle’s iconic landmarks.
The lookout is an ideal spot to get your bearings before exploring the rest of the park. From its rocky outcrop, you can see Crater Bluff, Belougery Spire, Breadknife, Balor Peak, Bluff Mountain, Bluff Pyramid, Split Rock and Mount Exmouth.
Spring is the best time to take on Whitegum lookout walking track, as the woodland is filled with wildflowers and wildlife. As you walk, keep an eye out for the striking birdlife on display, including double-barred finches, turquoise parrots, rufous whistlers and spotted pardalotes.
