    SAWN ROCKS *2*

    by balhannah Written Jun 21, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I walked to Sawn Rocks, I had a look at them from the viewing point. The track went further on, so I followed it down some steps to the creek. From here, you can gaze upwards at this amazing feature.
    I wandered in and around the creek, only a few pools of water about, it wasn't running.
    In this area, are large pieces that have falled off the cliff.
    Some had landed on their sides, and it really looked like, somebody had carved them into steps, they were perfect!

    TOURIST DRIVE 3 TO BINGARA

    by balhannah Written Jun 21, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really lovely scenic drive that we did.

    Just outside of Narrabri, on the Moree side, is the Brown tourist sign - Route 3, that goes to Bingara.
    At the start, it was flat country, a few paddocks of Cotton hadn't been harvested, but the rest had, it looked so nice. The road took us past "Sawn Rocks" and a "Glacial Area," up and over the northern section of the rugged Mt Kaputar National Park.
    We disturbed a huge flock of Galahs that were busy eating seed on the side of the road.

    The scenery is fabulous, make sure you go into Sawn Rocks for a look.
    The road is nearly bitumen the whole way, they were just finishing the last section.

    Distance to Bingara is 103kms.

    NARRABRI HISTORIC WALK

    by balhannah Updated Jun 20, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Narrabri has a historic town walk brochure, so pick it up from the information centre.
    I didn't follow the walk, but did walk the length of Maitland street where lots of the historic buildings are located.
    I do wish I had the map, as then I would have known what I was looking at.

    MOUNT NINGADHUN

    by balhannah Updated Jun 20, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mount Ningadhun at 1,373 metres high is a prominent volcanic plug that caught my eye as we were travelling along the road to Mt. Kaputar. It is part of the remnants of the Nandewar extinct volcano that ceased activity about 17 million years ago after 4 million years of activity.

    You can walk to it from Green Camp, but it is an 8km trek taking 8 hours to complete.

    It really is impressive! I just had to stop the car every now and then, and take more photo's of it!

    EUGLAH ROCK LOOKOUT

    by balhannah Written Jun 20, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is another lookout in the Mt. Kaputar national park.

    We drove into the Bark Hut Camping area, parked the car here, as this is where the walk began.

    Euglah Rock, is a giant dyke formed by volacanic activity 17 -18 million years ago. Erosion of the less resistant rock has left Euglah Rock standing.
    It is a short, easy walk of about 1km return. At the start of the trail, there is a notice board giving details on what you will see. The walk lead me to a proper viewing platform that overlooks Black Mountain creek and this giant outcrop [Euglah rock.. see photo] in the distance, quite impressive! More good views.

    Bark Hut campground has all amenities and 15 campsites.
    camping fees in 2010....were $5adult per night

    Check out the Flora

    In the Mount Kaputar National Park, the Gum Trees higher up, are nice and white, they are called Snow Gums.
    You will see Grass Trees, and in the area of Governors Lookout, the ground had two different types of Mosses growing, one area was particularly pretty with the moss growing over and around the granite boulders.
    It is pretty damp around here, so they grow well.

    THE GOVERNOR LOOKOUT - Part 1

    by balhannah Written Jun 20, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lookout is only a short, easy 300metre walk from the Car park. It is for those people that do not wish to do the longer walk which includes many stairs.
    You pass through white Snow Gums, of which there is birdlife, [I saw a bright yellow bird] and onto a viewing platform, it is worth the walk.
    If you are fit, continue along the longer walk [see tip...part 2]

    "THE PEAK OF MT. KAPUTAR"

    by balhannah Written Jun 20, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have conquered another Mountain!...............

    I was expecting a 3 hour return trek to do it, but to my surprise, the road leads nearly to the Mountain top, and from here, a new board walk of quite a few steps to a viewing platform has been built, so conquering this Mountain became a zinch!
    So now, everybody can conquer this Mountain, except people in wheelchairs.

    Mount Kaputar peak is 1,508 metres above sea level, and is part of the Nandewar Range. It was extremely cold at the top, the wind was bitter, and in Winter, Mt. Kaputar can receive snow. The view was worth putting up with the cold for a short time!

    On the information sheets, they claim you can see one tenth of New South Wales on a clear day from this summit.

    The summit is accessible from Narrabri via a 57 km long, winding and narrow road that is partly sealed.

    DOUG SKY LOOKOUT

    by balhannah Written Jun 20, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Doug Sky Lookout is located on your drive to the top of Mt. Kaputar.

    DO STOP HERE. There is a viewing platform with excellent views to the south, where on a clear day, you can see as far as The Warrumbungles.

    There is a plaque pointing to various Mountains and points of interest, and also an interesting notice board about the making of the road.
    This Lookout "Doug Sky' is named after the man who supervised the making of the road that leads to the top of Mt. Kaputar.
