Balor Hut - Warrumbungle National Park

National Park - New South Wales


Balor Hut campground features a historic walkers’ hut that was built between 1958 and 1962 when much of the park’s walking track network was being constructed. Balor Hut was one of five huts that were built along the Grand High Tops and is the last one that remains.

Accessed along the Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk, you can choose to spend the night inside the heritage hut on one of the slab bunks, or you can pitch a tent in the adjacent campsite. Apart from the resident wildlife in the park, you might get lucky and have the place to yourself.

This campground is not for everyone, as it can only be accessed on foot and the hut itself is fairly rustic. However because of this, it's a tranquil place to reflect, relax and admire the view of the Breadknife and Grand High Tops and the stars. No doubt after a peaceful night’s sleep at your own private campground, you’ll be ready to spring out of bed to start exploring.

Activities: walking, camping, astronomy and star gazing, picnics and barbecues
