Has anyone got some helpful advice regarding Caravan Camping in the Warrumbungle NP. I understand there are powered sites but do you have your own fireplace near your Van?

Also, given we love wildlife and walking, what would you recommend as a reasonable number of days to take in the place?

Cheers

Thanks Fred, Those sites are packed with info mate.
I was there a long time ago in a FJ40 and took an off-road camper up to Burbie Spring. Had a great week with the Emu's. I suppose we can expect crowds these days and a few locked gates.

Cheers

If you want it, I can send you the current NPWS map for the Warrumbungle NP which has a stack of info on as well as all the trails and tracks, and facilities. I'll be at our block up there over Easter.

Seakarvan'
There are both powered and unpowered sites. Powered site however are limited and you'll need to be quick on weekends to get one (best to book) other times it's relatively easy.
Planty of Fire Places scattered around all sites.
Fabulous spot.
Good amenities block as well, but a bit of a walk on a Frosty Winters night.

Thanks mate, its looking good after schoolies.

Can't operate without a fire, so I guess helping the locals is the go as advised by Coona Tourism.

You will need to take your own firewood in with you .... gotta protect those beetles and grubs ya know ..... lol

If you cant find any on the roadside ... there are enterprising locals sellling it on the road to the park.

Dont forget Coolah Tops and Mt Kaputar depending on the direction you are coming from .... and the time you have.
