Apsley Falls: Oxley Wild Rivers National Park


This photo was taken at Apsley Falls in the Oxley Wild Rivers Natonal Park, New South Wales, Australia. I visited here during my ‘Waterfalls Tour 2010,’ which was my recently completed holiday.

There had been a lot of rain in recent times and the river was quite swollen, in contrast to its usual flow. Unfortuately I was unable to take any photos from the Oxley Walk (the other side of the river), as the bridge that crossed the river upstream had been washed away.

Gloucester River Falls: Gloucester Tops – Barrington Tops National Park


Gloucester River FallsThis photo was taken at Gloucester River Falls in the Gloucester Tops, which is part of Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales, Australia. I visited here recently while on my ‘Waterfalls Tour 2010’ holiday.

The Gloucester River Falls walk takes about 30 minutes to complete and is a fairly easy circuit walk. The walk can take a lot longer if you explore the area surrounding the falls. On this trip I didn’t do that due to the rain, slippery conditions and swollen river.

The walk also passes the Andrew Laurie Lookout, which features great views over the Barrington Tops wilderness.

Sunrise Over the Singing Bridge

This photo was taken at Tea Gardens (New South Wales, Australia) on the 1st February 2010. The photo shows sunrise over the Singing Bridge, which crosses the Myall River.

This particular shot is looking towards the bridge from the river’s edge near the Tea Gardens Hotel.

Gloucester River Falls: Another Shot

This photo shows just one of the many numerous smaller falls along this section of the river.

Gloucester River Falls: Above the falls

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.

Gloucester River Falls: Looking Further Down River

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.
