This photo shows just one of the many numerous smaller falls along this section of the river.
This shot is taken from the Andrew Laurie Lookout, which is on the short track to the Gloucester River Falls in the Gloucester Tops section of the Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales, Australia.
The walk from the car park to the lookout is only about 5 to 10 minutes of easy walking, with a further 5 to 10 minutes until the Gloucester River Falls are reached. The circuit track back to the car park only takes about 30 minutes to complete in total and is an easy walk on a bush track, with some minor rises along the way.
This picture is of the Gloucester River above the falls pictured in the last two posts.
There are a series of falls along this stretch of the river, including a section I have been unable to reach because of the drop. One day I hope to trace the river upstream and locate the last section of the falls and get some photos.
The area photographed includes some great little spots for a dip on a hot day.
Today’s photo is another shot of the Gloucester River Falls area and is a view from the waterfall in yesterday’s photo. The view is of the river further downstream. It really is a beautiful location.
The climb from the waterfall to the base and further downstream can be a little tricky – especially when there has been some rain about and the river is running higher than normal.
I thought that I might post some photos from my archives over the next week or so – specifically of a place I really love. The Gloucester River Falls on the Gloucester River of course, are located within the Gloucester Tops section of the Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales, Australia. This area is my favourite spot in New South Wales.
Over the next week I hope to post photos of this area – not just the falls, but the surrounding area as well. I hope you enjoy them.
This particular view is a spot I would have to say is my favourite spot of the Gloucester Falls area. I have been trying to get the ‘just right’ shot for years.
