Camping and Concert confirmed in Warrumbungle National Park

Media release: 27 June 2013

Camp Blackman, the main campground in Warrumbungle National Park will reopen this week.

National Parks and Wildlife Service Area Manager Mark Fosdick confirmed the campground will open and the annual Crooked Mountain Concert will go ahead.

“The reopening of the main campground this Friday 28 June is an important step in the reopening of the park and will pave the way for increased visitation.

“Camp Blackman has all of its regular amenities in good working order. Visitors can take advantage of the powered sites, hot showers and flushing toilets which are not available at the other campgrounds.

“The response from visitors to the limited camping we have had available has been excellent and we know our regulars will be pleased to see Blackman back up and running.

“We are also delighted to be able to confirm that the annual Crooked Mountain concert will go ahead on 9 November.

“This annual not-for-profit event is an important part of the Coonabarabran community calendar and ever since the fire members of the community have been seeking confirmation that the concert will be staged this year.

“We shared the community view that the concert should go ahead and have been working towards this aim to secure some top quality acts.

“This year’s concert will feature Adam Brand as the headline act, with Travis Collins, People’s Palace and Jess Holland with Streamline rounding out the support acts.

“Tickets will go on sale from early July.

“It is all part of putting the Bungles and the local community back in business.

“We are continuing to work towards opening other areas of the park, such as the Breadknife and Grand High Tops walking tracks, but these must remain closed for the time being due to public safety.

“Burbie Canyon, Mt Exmouth, Whitegum Lookout walking tracks, and Belougery Split Rock Circuit are currently open for walking,” Mr Fosdick said.
