Distance of about 750kms from Brisbane, and just 36kms west of Coonabarabran along a sealed road, is the Warrumbungle Range, which contains the Warrumbungle National Park.
This park contains the remnants of the extinct Warrumbungle Volcano which began its life 17 million years ago.
Warrumbungle National Park is the ideal spot for a day trip or camping holiday.
We stayed at the Park's campground which was quiet, we could have campfires, and wildlife & Birds abounded.
There were plenty of bushwalking tracks, all different levels of difficulty, so something for everyone.
In the centre of the Park, is the Warrumbungle Visitors Centre which provides information on the Indigenous and European history of the area.
It is here you pay your park entry fee of $7 in 2012.
The Visitors Centre provides information on campgrounds, walking trails, geology and flora and fauna in the Park.
The shop sells guidebooks, posters, postcards, gifts, ice and some camping supplies and refreshments.
Both the centre and public toilets are wheelchair accessible.
Kangaroo's were around the centre, and a couple of the pretty bright red & green King Parrots.
The Park contains a dramatic landscape of craggy spires, domes, vast plateaus, forested ridges, and deep gorges.
The term 'Warrumbungles' is the Gamilaroi for 'crooked mountains'.
There are several Aboriginal sites that can be walked to.
I did quite a bit of bushwalking here, and will have to return to do some more.
It is a wonderful, interesting area!
We have walked the Warrumbungles, enjoyed the wildlife, but now it is time to move onto GILGANDRA on our road trip to Southern Australia.
