Mt Kaputar is a hidden gem. Equally as impressive as the better known Warrumbungles. Lots of great walks, out of this world views & great facilities. A small patch of unsealed road on the way up, but otherwise the road is good (narrow & windy, but good). We saw lots of kangaroos and had a BBQ at Dawsons Spring. The... More

It was 35 degrees in Narrabri as we drove up the winding road towards the top of Mt Kaputar National Park. Now we were amongst cool Mountain and Snow gums with spectacular views across the surrounding plains. With lots of short walks to various lookouts there was never a dull moment. Kangaroos, Brush tail wallabies, Wedge tailed eagles, and a... More

This park is located about 40km out of Narrabri. Nothing interesting to see on the way there. Once there you enter onto a really narrow road that leads you into the park. And by narrow I mean narrow. The speed limit is 40km/hr -you'd be stupid to go any faster. The road is too tight, and turns with low visibility.... More

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

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
