Eastern Outback Australia Camping At Warrumbungle National Park
This camp ground is in the beautiful National Heritage Warrumbungle National Park.
Warrumbungle is the remnants of a volcano that was active 13 million years ago, which has left behind rocky spires (the famous 90m high Breadknife being one of them), gorges and forests.
There are a lot of animals here - large populations of eastern grey kangaroos and emus, as well as plenty of birds. There used to be lots of koalas but they have been badly affected by the droughts. However, the visitor centre said you still might spot one at Camp Blackman or on one of the walks, but unfortunately we didn’t.
There are several camp grounds in Warrumbungle National Park:
There are also several backcountry campsites throughout the park and an 8 bunk hut at Breadknife.
The Breadknife - Warrumbungle National Park, Eastern Outback Australia
There are a lot of great hikes in Warrumbungle, including one of Australia’s Top 10 Walks - The Grand High Tops and Breadknife.
Many of the walks involve moderate to steep climbs because of the rocky terrain of the park, but there are some relatively flat walks that are graded as easy, as well as 2 wheelchair / pram suitable tracks.
Powered campsite: $10 per adult, $5 per school age child
Unpowered campsite: $5 per adult, $3 per school age child
Children under school age are free.
In addition to the camping fee you will have to pay a day fee for your vehicle of $7.
Approx 60 unpowered campsites and 30 powered campsites at Camp Blackman
