Best times to visit
There are lots of great things waiting for you in Warrabah National Park. Here are some of the highlights.
Make the most of the cooler days to explore some of the park's more heart-pumping bushwalks.
A lovely time to enjoy picnicking by the river, indulging in wildlife and nature photography, birdwatching, and bushwalking.
Cool off from the heat in the lovely Namoi River with a swim and a splash, enjoy a spot of fishing, or take on a bracing canoeing adventure.
The park is often quiet at this time of year, yet doesn't get too cold, so it's a good opportunity to go bushwalking and birdwatching in solitude.
