|FACILITIES AVAILABLE IN THIS PARK as known March, 2007"
Visitors are encouraged to wander the walking trails and tracks through the National Park and experience the peace and tranquillity of a protected, fragile environment guarded by the lofty mountains.
The Park covers an area of 21,004 hectares. Visitors share the Park with the hundreds of native animals and a picnic could introduce you to kangaroos, koalas, emus and an abundance of birdlife. The Visitors Centre in the Warrumbungles is staffed each day and provides walking maps and camping information. The staff are there to help you enjoy your visit. The peace and tranquillity in the Park is as reassuring to the fauna as it is to the visitors.
Walking tracks in the National Park are clearly marked and a map will give details of the terrain, time and features. The Grand Hightops is an unforgettable experience and although suggested as taking 4-6 hours, it is accessible even with children. The White Gum Lookout and Gurianawa walks are sealed and suitable for prams and wheelchairs, or for those who do not want to walk far - each walk is only about a kilometre.
There is a powered site caravan park in the National Park with amenities blocks and cleared sites provided for camping; electric barbecues save the problem when it comes to meal times, but if you really want a great camping experience with a campfire, you will have to bring your own wood.
