Who doesn't love a National Park? This place is tranquil and gorgeous, the lookout areas are plentiful and the view will never cease to impress. Great camping and BBQ areas. A must see if you are heading inland.

Mt Kaputar National Park is well worth the drive and visit too. The park is maintained to a high standard. We have stayed twice at the Dawson Springs Cabins in winter. The cabins are basic but have everything you need for your stay. The wood fire comes in handy and warms the cabin up nicely. We have done various walks... More

We came to Mt Kaputar after camping in the Pilliga Scrub, so the height and range of views from the walks were a fine contrast. We stayed at Bark Hut Campground in our camper trailer for three nights. Facilities were excellent, good hot showers and barbecues, and campfires near the campsite. Steep one-lane road up, not possible for caravans, but... More

There are a lot of walks for all levels of fitness. Great views over the plains and wonderful varied vegetation on all the walks. If you are fit a walk to the waterfall will not disappoint . This is a good place to camp or just picnic. The cabins are a great place to stay if you want a bit... More

My wife and I had visited Mt Kaputar twice before we had children, once as a day trip and once camping over night. We went up Mt Kaputar as a family at the start of July this year intending to do a couple of short walks at the top. However, when we got up the top it was cold, windy,... More

Worth the long high drive for the beautiful views and peace and quiet. My family conquered the Mt Kaputar mountain by four wheel drive up the steep one lane road. There are lookouts along the way that we stopped at and admired the views. Up and up and colder and colder, but worth it. We'd hoped for snow but had... More

The park is beautiful, amazing views and enough short walks to keep a child occupied. The drive up is not for the fainthearted - mostly single lane with a big drop off the side

We both enjoyed the drive out to and up Mt Kaputar, with scenic views all the way. With the height of the mountain it provided nice relief from the heat of NSW Plains. I imagine though it could be freezing in winter. A highlight was dropping in to the Mt Kaputar beekeeper where you can buy cheap honey direct and... More

Our visit was a delight - partly because the mountains are 1500 meters high and the temperatures were 10C cooler! Fantastic views (of 10% of NSW on a good day!), wonderful sub-alpine vegetation, good birding and excellent interpretative walks.
