Getting there:

From Narrabri, take Old Gunnedah Road south and after about 2.5km, turn left onto Kaputar Road. Follow Kaputar Road for 27km to the entrance of Mount Kaputar National Park. The road from the park entrance is a steep, single lane road and caravans are not permitted.

You’ll find the Lindsay Rock Tops car park about 20km along on the left, before you start up towards Mt Dowe.

Route/Trail notes:

From the car park, return to the road and walk up the tarmac to the top of Mt Dowe and back.



Other References/Comments:

With so many bushwalking options here and a length drive in, why not take advantage of the excellent camping facilities at Bark Hut or Dawsons Spring.

Not very inspiring and if we had know that there was no views from the top and only a communications tower, we would not have walk up.
