If you want to see Kangaroos, then this is the destination for you. Yes it’s way off the beaten track but well worth it. Since the devastating fires of 2013 many of the facilities and infrastructure have been replaced. Trees and shrubs are growing but you can still see the remnant blackened dead tree trunks everywhere as a reminder.
We camped in one of the main camp areas not far from the new Information Centre. There are spacious clean showers ( hot & cold water!), loos and washing facilities as well undercover free gas bbqs.

We travelled out to a less known entrance to the NP, close to Tooraweenah. It was very dry but beautiful all the same. Lots of birdlife.

Stayed at Camp Blackman for 4 days in unpowered tent site. The powered and unpowered areas are separate, which is great. The camping ground is excellent, lots of roos and emu around, and trees for haning the hammock. There are gas bbqs and stove top rings provided and the hot showers are the bees knees. The cleaner came daily and keep it all top notch. The best $6 pp investment you can ever make.

We did several walks in the park, all of which were great. Breadknife Hightops is an absolute must (adequate knees a requirement), and several shorter walks around the place. There's a lot of fire and flood damage around and there will be for a long while yet but still enough forest to get some reprieve from the sun while walking.

The visitor centre has lots of useful info and staff were really helpful.

Seen from quite a distance you can't help but notice the unusual and ragged skyline. Up close it is ver rugged and awesome. Great walks and camping areas. A few good lookouts. Visitor centre seemed to be shut fenced off.

I haven’t been on a hard walk like this is a long time but worth the view at the top. Calf muscles are in recovery mode today. The track is well looked after with many stairs and paved walkways. People wanting to do the full loop I suggest gaining a really good map not just the one that they hand you at the visitors centre is very basic and it is not well signed at the top. Mobile coverage along the walk was pretty good.

With numerous campsites, walking trails and spectacular scenery, one of the best parks in New South Wales. Friendly staff with abundant information help to make this park a fantastic experience. Pity the Crooked Mountain concerts aren’t still going as this was a great weekend that got me introduced to the park. Don’t forget the night sky, as a dark park the sky scenery is also visionary. Great place day or night.

We dropped into the Warrumbungle Visitor Centre after visiting Whitegum Lookout to obtain more information about the National Park. The NEW centre had been finished at 8pm the night before (on Sept 8) and we were lucky enough to be some of the 1st people through. I highly recommend a visit to this beautiful region, plus take the time to do the quick level walk around the Visitor Centre site, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete the circuit. You are guaranteed to see plenty of kangaroos (albeit in the distance) and enjoy spectacular scenery, easy walking & get plenty of clean fresh air.

A night sky so clear, so many stars! I stayed at the powered site camp Blackman but we had to get away to get to some open sky away from the trees.
Visitors centre wasn’t too helpful in terms of advice on where to camp for best views or hiking trail information and what to expect etc. but I will definitely return to the park for a longer visit to get a better feel for it.

Did many bush walks. Saw lots of wallabies and enjoyed the beautiful rugged scenery. Even though the bush is very dry it shows the exposed rock which makes more interesting photos.
