Sawn Rocks

Sawn Rocks is a 40 metre basalt rock cliff face featuring ‘perpendicular-octagonal shaped rocks, resembling a giant series of organ pipes’ & looks as though it was created by some architectural firm rather than nature.

Clear sunny day not too hot. Great Walk, sealed pathway until you get to the stairs. Steep. Rocky at bottom. Joggers best. Plenty of places to sit along the way. Toilet there, looked for creepy crawlies but not too bad . Picnic & BBQ area there as well. Rocks are stunning.

Mt Kaputar National Park

Reviewed By Chris S - Maclean, New South Wales, Australia

Whatever you love to do in the great Aussie outdoors, Mt Kaputar NP has delights in store for you.
Located 40kms east of Narrabri and accessed by a sealed road in good condition, the drive there is in itself quite delightful.
Entering the National Park one is confronted with the promise of a 20km drive to the top of the range. But then comes a surprise! After just 4 kms, the roughish dirt road turns to bitumen for the rest of the 20kms to the summit. Yeah!!
An information leaflet at the Information Bay at the beginning of the access road spells out the bushwalking tracks one can enjoy on the way. There are two great Lookouts too on the road to the top, where fantastic views will take one's breath away - which allows for some silence to listen to the wind in the trees and the singing of the birds. Awesome!
More bushwalks at the top - and a great picnic/camping area known as Dawson Springs, with good amenities - including super-clean electric barbeques that really do get hot!!!
Do yourself and your loved ones a real favour and schedule a trip to the Mt Kaputar National Park. You'll be so glad you did!

The Australia Telescope Compact Array

Reviewed By Anna D - Sydney, Australia

Although it’s un-manned, this Observatory is very well set up and interesting. There are older telescopes and other observational items set up around the outside of the visitor’s centre, and then the visitor’s centre itself has lots of information on easy to read displays, along with a screen showing the activity on the telescopes at the current time. There’s also a looped video showing the history and more info about the telescopes. We spent about 45 minutes looking around and it was well worth the trip.

Narrabri Shire Visitor Information Centre

Reviewed By Margaret B - Queensland, Australia

Of the many information centres we have visited and found to be very informative,this information centre is far superior. Large well laid out area displaying information of Narrabri and surrounding district. As well there is a large display, of well priced merchandise reflecting the cotton industry with a cotton harvester on display. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Ideally situated on the Newell Highway it is well worth a visit

Pilliga Artesian Bore Baths

Reviewed By Rhonda S - Perth, Australia

Spent 9 nights there-$5/night-had a very relaxing time with locals and fellow travellers. Not too sure if I would visit during the winter when the grounds are at capacity. Most certainly would stay again if in the area. Nice day trip from Bore Baths into either Wee Waa or Narrabri.
Only disappointment is the number of people who stay and do not pay. There are basic facilities only but the shire maintain 3 days per week and have plans for further upgrades.

Narrabri Fish Farm

Narrabri Fish Farm is the largest hatchery based aquaculture farm in NSW breeding native fingerling and yabbies. It is located just 10km out of Narrabri off the Newell Highway and a must see for all ages. The farm is set on 250 acres and contains over 100 ponds and a 4 metre sculpture of a Murray Cod made out of recycled materials. A 10.30am Group Fish feeding Tour is held daily, alternatively private fishing and yabbying is available between 8am and 4pm. Bookings are essential.

When I saw this among Narrabri attractions in the excellent information guide, I telephoned to make an appointment. One needs to look out for direction signs soon after leaving Narrabri, on the highway towards Boggabri, and be prepared to drive on gravel roads. Mark gave me an excellent hour's tour of numerous tanks and some of the 48 dams, introducing me to cat fish, golden and silver perch, Murray cod and a large barrabundi which jumped out to its tank to grab a yabby from Mark's fingers.
It was a fascinating and educational tour and all for just me.
To make the visit just perfect, I saw a group of six emu on the drive back to the highway.
