We stayed in a cabin at Dawsons Spring for 4 nights in July. The cabins are simple but cosy, and in winter the slow combustion fire (firewood provided) is fantastic. At $100 per night, sleeping 6, the cabins are great value. There is a range of bushwalks of varying distances, we did ones ranging in length from 50 metres, to... More

We spent 3 nights camping at Bark Hut in Kaputar National Park. It was beautifully quiet as the cold kept most campers away. Hot showers and toilets were clean. We did most of the walks over the 3 days and thought the views were fantastic. Especially from the Governor and Eckford Lookouts. Bundabilla walk was great - especially with snow... More

Wonderful views from the top but quite a winding and steep road. Worth the trip and take time for a rest and a coffee.

We headed up to Mount Kaputar late in afternoon and were treated to a spectacular drive through beautiful country. Plenty of roos so needed to drive slowly. The view from the top was impressive and we only wished we had more time to explore a bit more.

Sadly we were only passing through and got to camp at the national park for one night. It was the best campsite out of our entire trip!!!! * Lookout has spectacular views * campsites are gorgeous bush setting * lots of wildlife * plenty of walks (if you have time) * table and chairs for most campsites The most surprising...

We did the Yulludunida walk which is a "hard" hike. There are a lot of stairs so not suitable for young children or people with health problems. Because of time restraints we only made it half way up but there is still a great view from the cliff's edge. Amongst our hike we heard a goat and saw a wallaby.... More

Mt kaputar national park is a beautiful place to visit. Not far from the township of narrabri,its such a nice drive to some beautiful scenery with some fantastic views of the surrounding areas. In winter it does snow sometimes because of its altitude. Its well worth the effort to get up to the scenic areas where you can take some... More

The road started off quite good with asphalt, however when we drove onto the dirt road (forget it) it was rough, corrugated, no barriers all the way up, insufficient signage, barely suitable for a car to traverse. there was NOT ONE sign to tell us how far it was to the summit. Had we known how difficult the drive was... More

Mt Kaputar National Park has a good dirt and sealed road to the top with picnic tables and wood fire barbeques scattered throughout. Walking tracks marked from easy to hard. Viewing platforms easy to reach from road. The impressive formations are a distinctive contrast to the agricultural plains below. A must visit

One of my favorite memories as a kid is staying up in the cabins at Mt Kaputar National Park. The park is always clean, and trails are clearly marked. The bush walks are extraordinary, with lots of different trails for different abilities!!
