A forgotton gem. Having driven past so many times we decided to finally explore this national park and what a pleasant surprise. Fantastic view can be had from the summit on a clear day. Well worth the detour

This is great National Park - one of our favourites. I'd recommend staying for a few nights. The drive from Narrabri is around one hour each way. We stayed in the Dawson's Springs cabins - we had the middle cabin, the "Manning". We really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin catered for our needs really well with an incredibly well... More

The road up the mountain is a very windy in parts - a section in the middle is dirt but mostly sealed.Magnificent bushwalking and views- although don't bother with the Scutts Hut Kurrawonga Falls walk- very...

Wow...what an amazing place! I went camping and walking in Mount kaputar NP with my teenage son, and we both loved it. It's extraordinary how this mountain range rises above the plains up to 1,500 m. So be prepared for the cold. The Governor was one of my favourite walks. The camping facilities are good quality. Overall, I think this... More

The 'pipe organ' rock, a natural phenomena, was very impressive, as was the walkway to it. A great afternoon out.

This is a spectacular view from the top, but be warned that it does take 40 minutes driving on a hairy road which is dirt most of the way and only wide enough for one car in some spots.

This is a pleasant 30 min drive out of Narrabri in the opposite direction to Sawn Rocks, although they are in the same National Park. The road up to the top is narrow and winding, approx 20 km, and half of it is dirt. The dirt road is good but has several bits that were quite corrugated. Views from the... More

Great park. Incredible scenery. Lots of walks. Excellent facilities. Great camping areas. Need to be a bit careful on road to the summit - it's a bit narrow in parts.
