Waterfall views & 'gorgeous' views
Pure energy erupts from the crest of the Wollomombi Falls, as you admire the views of the highest waterfall in NSW and witness the cascading water over the 220m cliffs to the valley below.
Heavy rain adds to the dramatic natural spectacle with mist and the chance of a rainbow, as I experienced on my Autumnal walk.
Departing the picnic area and the Wollomombi camping ground, the track meanders along the top of the cliffs, with lookouts along the way over the gorge providing dramatic views of the wilderness and from the Falls lookout. Look out for wildlife around you and a possible siting of a wedge-tailed eagle as they glide gracefully atop the gorge.
The 4km walk to the falls is achievable by most of reasonable fitness with a metal bridge taking you over part of the gorge. It is a good introduction to walking and nature for adults and children alike.
Wollomombi Falls and walking track is located in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, a short drive from Armidale along the Waterfall Way and accessible by all vehicles. You meander along the top of the cliffs with lookouts along way over the gorge and the dramatic views.
