Starting from the Canyon picnic area off John Renshaw Parkway, Warrumbungle, this walk takes you on a circuit in the central section of Warrumbungle National Park. A lovely short trail that offers you a tranquil experience, this circuit lets you view some ancient rock formations and spires along with many animals. Kangaroos, emus and koalas reside in the area as well as red-winged parrots and brown falcons. Take your time and enjoy the landscape, and maybe finish your journey with a nice picnic at the Canyon picnic area. Sheltered picnic tables and BBQs are present. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
