Narrabri is a veritable playground for lovers of outdoor adventure.
Mt Kaputar National Park offers a great range of bushwalking options, from short strolls to day long hikes. As well as making a lovely background to our lives in Narrabri Shire, the Nandewar Ranges present a welcome respite from the summer heat and offer spectacular views year round. Pick up a brochure at the National Parks office or Visitor Information Centre for more information on the eleven marked walking tracks.
There are also opportunities for bushwalking within the Pilliga Forest. The Sandstone Caves and Salt Caves have short marked tracks and off track walking is permitted in National Parks and State Conservation Areas unless signs indicate otherwise.
If you plan to do any off track walking within the Pilliga Forest be sure to prepare yourself by carrying a map, navigational aid, water and food supplies and let someone know of your plans.
The Sandstone Caves walk is a picturesque marked trail and a good place to experience Aboriginal culture in the Pilliga. The Salt Caves walk takes you to a dam which attracts much wildlife, including numerous birds.
Narrabri has a local Bushwalking Club who regularly meet to conduct group bushwalks. For more information on this group you can visit www.narrabribushwalkers.org.au
