|2-5 Oct, Fri (09:00AM)-Mon (12:00PM)||Warrumbungles national Park|
|(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.
