Warrumbungle Shire is strategically positioned on the Newell Highway midway between Brisbane and Melbourne. The landscape ranges from extensive plains to undulating hills, from the high basaltic plateau of the Coolah Tops in the east to the rugged mountainous peaks of extinct volcanoes in the Warrumbungle National Park.

The stunning night skies, formed by a combination of low pollution, very low humidity and limited cloud cover draw astronomers to the Siding Spring Observatory.
