Bluff Mountain & Grand High Tops, Warrumbungle National Park NSW
The must do circuit walk in the Warrumbungles, taking in famous views of the Breadknife from Grand High Tops, and a visit to Bluff Mountain (1200m) where there are more great views.
The Grand High Tops Circuit with an added side trip to Bluff Mountain (1200m) is arguably the best walk in the Warrumbungles, especially for views. From Grand High Tops there are classic views of the pleasingly named rock formation, The Breadknife, which is a tall, thin and sheer slice of rock that you pass on the way up. There are also great views of nearby Crater Bluff, and of Belougery Spire, both prominent and striking hunks of rock.
We added a short side trip to Macha Tor also, which can be visited on Gould’s Circuit, although we didn’t do the full circuit. This is a good way to start the walk (if you do it clockwise), as there are open views of most of the park’s main features viewed from below. Nearby Spirey View lookout is not as good, although that is easily accessible just off the main track.
