Guinema Road Tourist Drive


The Guinema Road Tourist Drive shows the stunning geological formations located in the rugged volcanic landscape of the Warrumbungles.

This is a pretty area of the Warrumbungles that can be viewed by car along Guinema Road. The turn off is about 20 kilometres north west of Coonabarabran, where you will discover some amazing views of the mighty ancient escarpments of the National Park.

Due to the January 2013 bushfires that burnt most of the Warrumbungle National Park, new rock faces have been revealed along with columnar structures and volcanic dykes and plugs. You can now see the margins of the tuffaceous deposits and massive trachytes flows or domes which couldn't be seen before because of the heavy covering of trees and undergrowth.

Part of this drive is dirt road but can be accessed by both car or four wheel drive, weather permitting.

For further enquiries contact Pilliga Forest Discovery Centre.
