Warrumbungle is a Gamilaraay word meaning crooked mountain

The Warrumbungle National Park landscape has been shaped by thousands of years of volcanic activity.

Warrumbungle National Park is one of the top adventure areas in the country. Catering for every style of visitor, whether remote walk-in camper, tent or caravan. Inclusive options for young or old, and it even has a wheelchair-accessible track and lookout, with views that are a jaw-dropper.

It goes without saying that photography and artistic fodder is a plenty. Strongly recommend Camp Blackman with PowerPoints in the Amenities block and powered sites to recharge camera and phone batteries(peek season may be a challenge). Also, grassed and paved areas for camping, keeping equipment cleaner.

Note: Camp Blackman has 3 causeways to cross in wet weather to get access to good walks. Was almost trapped… but what a place to be trapped 😊

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring (none school holidays)


Chunky rock escarpments, fast-flowing creeks, diverse wildlife, dark night skies, and at the moment the blackened trunks from the bushfires contrast beautifully with the lush green foliage from the very wet conditions of 2022. Whitegum lookout would be my pic for En Plein Air as its a short walk to carry your gear(path is even good enough for a trolly) and their is room to find a shaded spot withought getting in everyone's way.(Tap icon for up to date info)


Along the axcess road (John Renshaw Pkwy) there are several advantage points for capturing the large area from a distance including the viewing platform just sth of Tooraweenah. Only had time to do Fans Horizon and Whitegum walks but both had the most stunning views. (Tap icon for up to date info)
