Fantastic hike trails for both young and old. Short and long walks. Cabins beautifully designed - fit nicely into the National Park environment. Great amenities and the campsites are well spaced and clean.

The road up while mostly sealed has a short part of dirt road. The views from the many lookouts are unsurpassed and we saw it on a cloudy day, yet could make out the Warrumbungles near the horizon!! I would love to see it on a fine day!!! At Mt Kaputar you can search for the rare giant pink slugs-... More

Excellent park with fantastic views on a clear day. Usually a few degrees cooler than at Narrabri. Fabulous facilities and lots of great walks

This national park is the site of a 20 million year old volcano and the walks to several peaks are spectacular. It is about 40km off the main highway so some time and effort is needed to get there. I particularly recommend Waa Gorge and the 1500 metre high Mt Kaputar (which you can drive to). It has very interesting... More

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
