For a rewarding walk with breathtaking scenic views across the dramatic volcanic landscape in Mount Kaputar National Park, try Governor Summit walking track, near Narrabri. Also known as Corrunbral Borawah, it's a great track for experienced walkers and birdwatching. The walking track follows an easy sealed boardwalk to Governors lookout, where you can bask in the superb scenic mountain views. You'll see majestic mountain gums and vibrant wildflowers in the spring. The second half of the track, though, will definitely get your heart racing. Ascending steeply via ladders, you'll have to do some rock scrambling, but it's all worth the effort. From the unfenced summit, you can take in the magnificent 360-degree panorama across Nundewah Ranges and Euglah Rock. Raptors such as wedge-tailed eagles are often seen circling on the updrafts and clear autumn days are ideal for unending scenic views.
