Gunneemooroo Campground - Warrumbungle NP

National Park - New South Wales

Favourite

Gunneemooroo campground is a picturesque campground set in the shadows of Mount Naman. Located in the southern part of Warrumbungle National Park, it’s a remote bushland setting where tranquility and a relaxing outback retreat awaits. Find a campsite at this peaceful back-to-basics campground, then wander down to the nearby creek to explore. After a day immersed in nature, sit back and savour the flavours of hot tucker around the campfire (fire bans may be in place). Step away from the warmth of the fire to enjoy stargazing and be mesmerised by the abundance of stars sprayed across the night sky. You might also hear the sounds of boobook owls in the trees and tawny frogmouths from the nearby creek.

Good amount of room, for the number of permitted campsites, so you get a good amount of privacy. (Definitely the least packed of the sites we saw around Warrumbungle). Well maintained toilet block, no smells (semi-hidden door - it’s the right hand sheet of corrugated iron). Note: this campsite is the furthest away from the main walking paths, and not directly connected (MVO-only track) so you will need to take a roughly 25-minute car journey to get to those paths. In the dry, a normal road car can easily make it to the gate (locked, combination sent upon booking), and there’s enough room there to park three to four vehicles. April 2022 - Grass could do with a bit of a slash.
