Coonabarabran is the best base to view the Warrumbungle National Park. This is our third time of trying to see the Warrumbungles. 3 years ago we were stopped by large bushfires. 2 years ago we were stopped by the remnants of a cyclone. And, yes, we didn’t make it this year either because it rained constantly for 2 days and the bush tracks were impassable. We did meet some ‘nice’ bikie campers though. Better luck next time.
