Mount Kaputar National Park is a national park in Australia, surrounding the proximities of Mount Kaputar, a volcano active between 17 and 21 million years ago. It is located 50km east of Narrabri and 570km northwest of Sydney. Millions of years of erosion have since carved the volcanic region into the lava terraces, volcanic plugs, and dykes of Nandewar Range. The central feature of the region is Mount Kaputar, the park's namesake, which rises to an altitude of 1510m. The 360 degree view from the summit of the mountain encompasses a good deal less than 1/10 of New South Wales' area or 80,000 km2 (31,000 sq mi).The park protects a wide range of biomes, including semi-arid woodland, subalpine heath, and eucalypt forests, and provides a habitat for a range of animals, including bats, birds, wallabies, quolls, and the unique red triangle slug (Triboniophorus graeffei), which is known to appear after rainfall.Make Mt Kaputar National Park a centerpiece of your Narrabri vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Narrabri day trip tool.
