Mount Kaputar and Warrumbungles National Parks

It has taken a while to compose this blog, but as promised here are some photos of our trip to Mount Kaputar and Warrumbungles National Park.

Mount Kaputar was our first stop over and we spent 2 nights camped at Dawson's Springs camping area which was the perfect starting point for many of the walks on offer which include Mount Kaputar summit walk, Dawson's spring nature trail and Bundalla circuit the highlight was our Bundalla circuit walk when we had to take shelter in a tree to wait out a passing shower but the spectacular views on offer from the 3 lookouts made it worth while. We also drove over to Sawn Rocks which is located in the north part of the Park to see the amazing rock formation called organ piping.

 Our next stop was Warrumbungles National Park http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/parkHome.aspx?id=N0035
were we stayed at Camp Blackman which has 70 sites available and includes hot showers and flushing toilets. The camp is a short drive to the main walking tracks which vary in degrees of difficult and length. While we were there we completed Fans Horizon which has over 1000 steps and Goulds Circuit which provides views of the Breadknife. Unfortunately due to the limited amount of time we had out there we were unable to complete anymore of the 12 walks on offer but we will be sure to go back and try the Grand High tops circuit in the future along with visiting the Siding Springs Observatory located just outside the park.
