For some of the most superb scenic views across Nandewar Ranges and nearby Mount Kaputar National Park, head to Biruu gaba lookout walking track. Located in Deriah Aboriginal Area, near Narrabri, this short yet steep track can be tackled by all ages and is extremely popular with birdwatching enthusiasts. Following the clearly signposted track through open woodlands of cypress pine, you might see a flash of vibrant colour as the turquoise parrot flies past or perhaps spot a brush turkey darting through the trees. At the lookout, take in the magnificent views and see if you can identify the distinctive peaks of Nandewar Ranges. Ideal for school groups, discover traditional uses for plants found in the area via the informative signage. Round off your day with lunch at Wagun picnic area, featuring Culture Sculpture walk.
