Information

A World Heritage park with dramatic gorges and waterfalls, extensive wilderness, wild and scenic rivers, dry rainforest and many rare plants and animals. Wollomombi is the highest waterfall in NSW, and the Bicentennial National Trail passes through the park.
The park is large, with ten separate visitor areas. Gara Gorge is for day visitors only. Wollomombi Gorge, Long Point, Dangars Gorge, Budds Mare, Apsley Falls and Tia Falls are suitable for 2WD car-based camping. Riverside and Youdales Hut suit camping and day visits but can only be reached in a 4WD vehicle, with no trailers allowed (bookings required, phone 6777 2755 or 6777 4700). East Kunderang Homestead has accommodation but no camping (bookings required, phone 6738 9100). Walks of varying grades and distances are available from each visitor area. There are excellent facilities for people with a disability, including paths to spectacular lookouts at Apsley, Dangars and Wollomombi falls.
Access The park begins about 20 km east of Armidale and Walcha, so there are two main access roads: the Waterfall Way and Oxiey Highway. Other access roads are good but unsealed, with 4WD required in a few places. Check a detailed map for other access points and seek further information before visiting.
