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.

This mountain range stands in stark contrast to the flat plains stretching out as far as the eye can see to the west. Really interesting volcanic rock formations.

50 kms out of Narrabri is Mount Kaputar national park. The ascent is along a winding road, parts of it just gravel and at the top, 1,500 metres above sea level we were treated to a wonderful view of the national park and apparently 10% of NSW and the Nandewar Ranges. As it was spring there were a lot of... More

This was my phrase for the day for more the one reason! The drive up was absolutely gorgeous but very hairy for me! I wanted to turn around but couldn't until I got quite near to the top and then well it wasn't worth it seeing as I had come that far already. So glad I didnt turn back because... More
