We visited The Warrumbungles in May 2016. The park is in good condition considering the fires of a couple of years earlier. The bush walks range from very easy to difficult and they all offer a great experience of all the park has to offer.

The 2013 fires were devastating, yet much is recovering, and the extraordinary rocks are the star players, clearer views until the trees regain their height. many of the walks are once more usable, and the temporary visitor centre is staffed bu very helpful people

Just make the effort to drive off the Newell Highway and go the the magical and mystical Warrumbungles. For sure you won't regret it ever, even though it might add a couple of hours if you want to stop and take photos or just experience the views and tranquility. There is a lot of history to this place and some... More

This is my second trip to the Warrumbungles - though admittedly the first time much of the NP was closed due to the fire. I did the Grand High Tops / Breadknife walk. Stunning geology and I can see why this particular walking track is rated highly. The path gets quite steep towards the end, and some scrambling over rocks... More

Did the Breadknife and High Tops Circuit walk - started at 11 and finished at 4 with couple of short stops on route. Really stunning scenery and views all along the way. One of the loveliest walks I've done with a few exciting rock scrambles thrown in.

Spectacular and impressive mountains a nature photographers paradise. We enjoyed the short walks that we did, but sadly we did not have the time to spend more time in this wonderful National Park. Beauty abounds with sights of amazing rock formations and local flora and fauna. Camp Blackburn looked a very tranquil, spacious and enjoyable spot to camp at next... More

The Warumbungles has to be one of my all time favourite places. I never tire of the beauty and grandeur of them. Fantastic for bush walking or just some quite reflections listening to the whispers of Mother Nature and Father Time.

A very impressive view from the air or ground. Between the drive from Coonabarabran to siding springs observatory and over 10hrs flying in the area we were very impressed with the amazing views and scenery. The volcanic structures are impressive to say the least and well worth taking you time to explore if viewing from the ground.

Warrumbungle Nat Park has to be one of Australia's great parks no matter what time of year. Does not matter if you travel and avail yourself to the many forms of accommodation in the area - local cabins, caravan parks, caravan & camping grounds within the park and many motel/hotels a short drive (33km) into Coonabarabran. The camping grounds at... More
