Fancy a leisurely drive through the iconic Warrumbungles, taking in some of the sights that have put this area on the world map? The 70 kilometres Coonabarabran – Warrumbungle – Tooraweenah drive combines views, lookouts, and easy walks on a spectacular day trip.
Starting in Coonabarabran, you’ll drive through the picturesque Timor Valley. Highlights worth a visit include Timor Rock and the Anglo-Australian telescope at Siding Spring.
Arriving at the entrance to Warrumbungle National Park, a pit stop at the accessible Whitegum lookout is on the cards. Here, you’ll enjoy a wonderful panorama over the ‘crooked’ mountains across to the impressive Breadknife and Belougery Split Rock.
If you’re feeling like stretching your legs, try the easy Gurianawa walking track or unpack the hamper at the nearby Canyon picnic area. Continue through the park towards Tooraweenah keeping an eye out for majestic Mount Exmouth on your left.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
