Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long60 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 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.
