Counting waterfalls & cascades in Barrington Tops

The pure waters of Barrington Tops tumble off the high volcanic plateau not in dramatic single-drop falls but instead via discreet falls & cascades, in many hidden ravines & secret gullies. A few of these gentle waterfalls are easily accessible on walking tracks, some with observation points & picnic areas or even camping areas. Try Gloucester Falls (in Gloucester Tops); Polblue Falls & Gummi Falls (in Barrington Tops State Conservation Area); Currawong Creek Falls (near Rocky Crossing on the Williams River via Dungog); or Jerusalem Creek Falls (via Dungog).

In addition there are many other unnamed mossy cascades in the national parks, state conservation areas & state forests of Barrington Tops. So get your explorer boots on & see how many you can find. For starters, try the Antarctic Beech Forest Track at Gloucester Tops.

And for intrepid overnight bushwalkers, try ticking these off your cascade check-list… if you can find them: Basden Falls, Double Falls, Cobbers Falls, Far Eastern Falls. Find some more & name them yourself!

HOW: Various walks, trails and tracks in the Barrington Tops parklands & state forests via Gloucester or Dungog. Download the waterfalls brochure here.
