Coolah Tops National Park Highlights: Waterfalls plunge from the plateau heights. Giant grass trees and tall, open forest with stands of huge snow gums shelter abundant wildlife, including gliders, wallabies, eagles and rare owls.
Activities: The higher altitude offers cool walks throughout the year and amazing views northward towards the Liverpool Plains. There are plenty of opportunities for picnicking, as well as car-based, caravan (very limited) and backpack camping, with a choice of sites all at the western end of the park.
