Information

The combination of forested ridges, rocky spires and domes, deep gorges and plenty of camping and visitor facilities make Warrumbungle one of the state's most popular national parks.
See ancient volcanic remnants from the Grand High Tops track, one of Australia's great walks. White Gum Lookout walk is a 1-km return bitumen track suitable for wheelchairs, with views of jutting peaks and the western plains. Gurianawa track (less than 1-km return loop suitable for wheelchairs} leads down to Spirey Creek and provides good views of the old volcanoes, Siding Spring Observatory and flats. Walking tracks vary widely in grade and length - several are easy and well formed while others are steep and rough.
The volcanic cliffs are popular for rock climbing {not permitted on The Bread-knife; you'll need a permit elsewhere). Discovery walks, talks and tours are available in spring and autumn school holidays or to groups on request; these include walks to Tara Cave with a local Aboriginal guide, spotlight night walks and children's activities.
Camping is available at Camp Blackman (facilities include hot showers), Pincham (backpack camping} and several other sites. Book for large groups (phone 6825 4364). There are wheelchair-accessible toilets at Camp Blackman, Split Rock, the Woolshed and Canyon picnic area. Groups can hire the Woolshed for undercover camping; call the visitor centre for details.
Access 35 km west of Coonabarabran on John Renshaw Parkway, or 80 km north-east of Gilgandra via Gumin Road (partly unsealed}. Vehicle entry fee applies.
