Towarri National Park
Camp, swim and hike in Towarri National Park where you’ll find sandstone outcrops, secluded waterholes, diverse birdlife and scenic lookouts, just 25 kilometres from Scone.
Towarri is a diverse landscape of various vegetation types. Pockets of rainforest, stands of large grass trees and sections of snow gum co-exist within the park. There’s also a wide range of birds, including the endangered speckled warbler.
Sandstone outcrops offer sweeping scenic views of the Upper Hunter and a lack of defined tracks in the park’s mountainous terrain allow hikers the freedom to independently explore. Look out for the caligula skink, which is only found here in the Liverpool Ranges and in the Barringtons.
Camp or picnic beside Middle Brook, enjoy the scenery from the viewing platform and take a refreshing dip in the Washpools waterhole.
