Burbie Camp Camping Area - Warrumbungle National Park NSW

See ancient volcanic remnants from the Grand High Tops track, one of Australia's great walks. White Gum Lookout walk is a 1-km return bitumen track suitable for wheelchairs, with views of jutting peaks and the western plains. Gurianawa track (less than 1-km return loop suitable for wheelchairs} leads down to Spirey Creek and provides good views of the old volcanoes, Siding Spring Observatory and flats. Walking tracks vary widely in grade and length - several are easy and well formed while others are steep and rough.
The volcanic cliffs are popular for rock climbing {not permitted on The Bread-knife; you'll need a permit elsewhere). Discovery walks, talks and tours are available in spring and autumn school holidays or to groups on request; these include walks to Tara Cave with a local Aboriginal guide, spotlight night walks and children's activities.
Camping is available at Camp Blackman (facilities include hot showers), Pincham (backpack camping} and several other sites. Book for large groups (phone 6825 4364). There are wheelchair-accessible toilets at Camp Blackman, Split Rock, the Woolshed and Canyon picnic area. Groups can hire the Woolshed for undercover camping; call the visitor centre for details.
