The Tamworth region gives you the opportunity to choose your own adventure, whether it be paragliding, horseriding, canoeing or rock climbing. The area’s two stunning national parks, Warrabah National Park and Mount Kaputar National Park, are ideal for an adventurous day trip. The rugged escarpment of Mount Kaputar boasts spectacular scenery, and is perfect for bushwalking, and you can fish, swim, kayak and canoe at Warrabah, one of the few inland river national parks in the state.
