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. Warrumbungle National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
