If it’s an adventure the whole family can enjoy, look no further than Warrabah National Park.Well known by locals, but relatively unheard of by the general population, Warrabah National Park is a playground for those who love the great outdoors.
The 6 hour journey from Sydney may test the patience levels of the kids, but trust us when we say that once you reach the park, there’ll be endless opportunities for them to run, jump, explore and fossick.
Difficult terrain and granite-strewn hills meant the park was immediately dismissed as potential agricultural land – paving the way for it to achieve National Park status in 1984. It’s the sprawling, undulating land however, that makes this park so unique.
4WD enthusiasts, bushwalkers and even paragliders flock to the park for it’s ideal conditions, while the Namoi River provides the perfect place to indulge in some water-based activities.
There are plenty of camping spots on offer, but those that frequent Warrabah regularly know the best spots are by the Namoi River, right in the heart of the park.
