NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service - Coolah Tops National Park

Sitting at the junction of the Warrumbungle and Liverpool ranges, Coolah Tops National Park is a beautiful landscape of giant grass trees, tall eucalypt forests and stands of huge snow gums. You may need to spend a weekend discovering everything that Coolah Tops has to offer. There's remote camping, so you can spend the night stargazing, or after a day of walking and mountain biking, perhaps you'd prefer to sleep soundly at rustic Bracken's Cottage.

Looking out across the stunning scenery of Coolah Tops National Park, it's obvious why you'll find so much wildlife here. Wander quietly along one of the walking tracks and you'll probably have a close encounter with red-necked wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos. You might also find a wombat waddling through the campground. Coolah Tops has some of the highest population densities of greater gliders in Australia. At night, keep your torch handy to see greater gliders, ring-tailed possums and possibly feather-tailed gliders or a sugar glider in the nearby trees. Coolah Tops is home to an abundance of wildlife and birdlife, so you might see wallabies, eagles, gliders and rare owls.

Pack your hiking boots and your mountain bike and be ready to get active in the bush at Coolah Tops. There are plenty of great walking tracks and trails to experience the bush on your bike. Make your way to lookouts like Shepherd's Peak or Breeza lookout for spectacular views to the north over the Liverpool Plains and the sheer escarpment. You'll also find several waterfalls along the escarpment where the creeks plunge over the plateau edge.

Things to Do:

  • Wander out to Norfolk Falls, Bundella lookout and Pinnacle lookout for spectacular waterfalls and magnificent views.
  • Take your mountain bike for an adventure along Cox's Creek fire trail
  • Go on a scenic drive on Talbragar loop as it winds through the natural surroundings
