Coonabarabran, Warrumbungle, Tooraweenah Drive

Natural Attractions

Fancy a leisurely drive through the iconic Warrumbungles, taking in some of the sights that have put this area on the world map? The 70 kilometres Coonabarabran – Warrumbungle – Tooraweenah drive combines views, lookouts, and easy walks on a spectacular day trip.

Starting in Coonabarabran, you’ll drive through the picturesque Timor Valley. Highlights worth a visit include Timor Rock and the Anglo-Australian telescope at Siding Spring.

Arriving at the entrance to Warrumbungle National Park, a pit stop at the accessible Whitegum lookout is on the cards. Here, you’ll enjoy a wonderful panorama over the ‘crooked’ mountains across to the impressive Breadknife and Belougery Split Rock.
