The Warrumbungles National Park is known for its iconic volcanic formations, including the famous Breadknife and Belougery Spire. These towering rock formations are a sight to behold, providing a dramatic backdrop against the outback skies. Hiking enthusiasts will be thrilled to explore the various trails that wind their way through the park, offering stunning viewpoints and a chance to get up close to these ancient geological wonders.

One of the most popular hiking trails in the park is the Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk. This challenging but rewarding trail takes you to the summit of the Breadknife, offering panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and mountains.

The park offers excellent picnic spots and camping facilities. Camp Blackman campground is a great place to set up camp, with its well-equipped facilities and stunning views of the night sky. As the park is located in a Dark Sky Park, it provides an excellent opportunity for stargazing, with millions of stars twinkling above you on a clear night.

For those interested in astronomy, the Siding Spring Observatory is a must-visit attraction within the park. Home to several telescopes and research facilities, it offers a fascinating insight into the wonders of the universe. Visitors can take part in guided tours and learn about the latest discoveries in astronomy.

In addition to its natural wonders, Warrumbungles National Park also offers excellent astronomy workshops conducted by local enthusiasts. During my visit, I had the privilege of attending a workshop led by the knowledgeable astronomer, Peter Starr. His explanation of the night sky was excellent, and we were given the incredible opportunity to connect our cameras to his 20-inch telescope, which was trained at the magnificent Orion Nebula. It was a truly unforgettable experience that allowed us to marvel at the wonders of the universe.
