Warrumbungle NP, NSW, Australia ****
Pros: Great hiking, spectacular landscapes, lots of stargazing opportunities as virtually no light pollution (some observatories will let you take a photo with your own camera – check out mine taken with the old D60), few places to visit on the way or around the park.
Cons: it’s far from Sydney (about 500 km)
