Warrumbungle National Park, Coonabarabran

(4.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Heritage-listed Warrumbungle National Park incorporates arguably the most ecologically significant section of the Warrumbungle Mountains, which shelter numerous threatened woodland bird species and a large koala population, believed to number in the hundreds. Choose one of many scenic bushwalks to see the park’s unusual lava formations, formed by past volcanic activity. Other popular activities include rock climbing, rappelling, and birdwatching. Situated immediately adjacent to this national park is the Siding Spring Observatory, constructed here because the park provides a relatively light-free environment. Drop by the observatory’s large viewing platform to see and photograph the surrounding mountains, which are especially attractive when seen at sunset. By using our Coonabarabran vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Warrumbungle National Park and other attractions in Coonabarabran.

  • Except for the heat, this place was lovely. You are guaranteed to see loads of wildlife, we saw kangaroo, mountain goats, loads of birds and lizards. Lots of walks to go on, ranging from short and flat to long and steep.
  • Still recovering from the bushfire but still worth a visit. Always amazing to see the remnants of old volcanoes.
  • Awesome place for active walking holiday. Stunning scenery and great camping.
  • A wonderful look at the new growth after the fires, it looks great and a photographers dream and the showers are as hot as ever
  • The facilities were the best of all the parks we camped at! Stopped here on my Brisbane - Melbourne road trip.
