Warrumbungle National Park Visitor Centre Manager May Fleming said the family day would celebrate the new facilities, tracks and trails in the park replaced after the devastating fire.

“Constantly voted as one of the best walks in Australia, the Grand High Tops, should be starting to see some wildflower action.

“But the open day will also enable people to see its famous formations, like the Breadknife, from a different perspective, with helicopter flights available for a fee throughout the day.

“Other options include free cultural tours to Tara Cave where Aboriginal guides will be on hand to talk about its ancient past.

“Or join in a 4-wheel drive tag along tour along Burbie trail and explore the heart of the park.

“Park entry will be free for the day, there will be live music, markets and activities for the kids.

“Scientists who have undertaken studies of the park’s recovery will be on hand to talk about some of their fascinating findings.

“We will have buses running from Coonabarabran and shuttle buses operating within the park.

“Of course our new visitor centre will be open and ready for people to see the remarkable transformation and awesome new exhibitions.

“We’re calling the day Back to the Bungles, but it really signifies, the Bungles is back.

“It’s been a hard journey to get to this point and it’s time now to celebrate how far we have come,” Ms Fleming said.

Back to the Bungles is on from 10am until 3pm on Saturday 22 September.
