Overview

Highlights

Mount Exmouth walking track is a must-do bucket list experience for the avid hiker, located in the Warrumbungle Range near Coonabarabran in country New South Wales.

This long trek is also an extremely rewarding one: the 360-degree views from Mount Exmouth, the 1206m peak of Warrumbungle Range, are truly outstanding. Along the way to the summit, you’ll encounter beautiful scenery, a varied vegetation community, and basalt rock formations that comprise some of the few remaining pieces of the original volcanic shield.

Following Mount Exmouth walking track is to walk back in time, experiencing the best that Warrumbungle National Park has to offer. You won’t be alone, either. Kangaroos, wallabies and wallaroos are common sights along the track. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a rare koala in the trees along ‘The Boulevarde’, a stretch of scenic woodland between Camp Burbie and Danu Gap. Don’t forget your binoculars, too – turquoise parrots can be seen in small flocks around the same area.

The vegetation on the summit is sparse, and only the hardiest of plants like the mallee eucalyptus can survive here. But in spring, the wildflowers are out down below, including pink hyacinth orchids and nodding greenhood. Pack a picnic lunch and settle down to enjoy the ambience of the day.
