Grade:3/6 Sydney Branch
Mark G.
Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.60 Best walks | This is one of the NPA's 60 best walks.(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) It's very hard to beat the Warrumbungles National Park in Spring if you want to commune with nature and do some truly spectacular walking on an impressive track system. Add hot showers and good amenities and it all adds up to a fantastic time in the bush. Also, there should be a good display of wildflowers to enjoy. I plan to start the first walk on the friday morning after setting up camp Rock scrambling on some walks. The walk will be contingent on the current restrictions on camping easing in time.

Some great campsites; some nice swimming holes; mostly short days; with at least one 2-night stop, all make this a really terrific walk. There is great demand for the limited walk permits at this time of the year so we need to book close to the possible one-year in advance. Seven days (6 nights) of actual walking. A day of snorkeling on the reef prior to the walk is also planned.
