I will be in Armidale for a few days next April with 22 high school students. We'll be coming from Quirindi and then after Armidale, heading for Belligen. Since we will be spending a full day in Dorrigo National Park while in Belligen, I'm looking for another good park to visit from Armidale (not a rainforest like Dorrigo) - OR on the way there from Quirindi. We have a school bus. I see where they are on the map, but WHERE one enters these parks is not clear. Does anyone know which of these parks - Warrabah or Coolah Tops, or the area around Gunnedah - would be the best to visit? I've tried contacting the National Park Service in Warradah but get no answer. I'd like a place where we can see plenty of wildlife and preferably hike with a ranger. Any helpful tips appreciated!
