Coolah Tops National Park

 

Coolah Tops National Park is located at the junction of the Warrumbungle and Liverpool ranges. 

 

Highlights:

 

Waterfalls plunge from the plateau heights in this spectacular park. Giant grass trees and tall, open forest with stands of huge snow gums shelter abundant wildlife, including gliders, wallabies, eagles and rare owls.

 

Activities:

 

The higher altitude offers cool walks throughout the year and amazing views northward towards the Liverpool Plains. There are plenty of opportunities for picnicking, as well as car-based, caravan (very limited) and backpack camping, with a choice of sites all at the western end of the park.

 

Access:

 

30 km east of Coolah, along the Coolah Creek Road (unpaved sections). 4WD is necessary on some roads in the park, but camping areas at The Barracks, The Pines and Coxs Creek are 2WD accessible.
