Warrabah National Park

At Warrabah National Park, near Tamworth and Uralla, you can enjoy camping, bushwalking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, wildlife photography, and birdwatching by Namoi River.

One of the few inland river parks in NSW, beautiful Warrabah National Park, just east of Manilla and north of Tamworth, has a tranquil atmosphere thanks in large part to the spectacular Namoi River. The park is bisected by over 14 kilometres of the river in a dramatic gorge. Massive granite boulders perch high above the valley’s deep, calm pools and the swelling river rapids offer exciting adventures for intrepid canoeists.

Naturally, most visitors to the park base their exploration of the park around riverside activities, such as swimming, fishing, liloing, and canoeing, or vehicle-based camping, bushwalking and picnicking by the water. The park’s sense of peaceful solitude makes it a wonderful spot for long, relaxed bushwalks, birdwatching, nature photography, and self-reliant camping and hiking.

There’s plenty of space in which to camp and picnic and lots to explore, from the grassy flats beside the river to the towering ridgelines that rise high above it. You’ll find campsites nestled in the bush and a well laid out space designed specifically for scenic picnics by the river.
