Even though there was not much water in the rivers the falls were worth the trip and the walks. A couple of lookouts were closed for maintenance and the camping ground was shut which was disappointing as we were going to stay there.

The drive here took about 15-20 minutes from Armidale through scenic rural views of sheep, autumn leaves . The actual reserve is well signposted and has good fencing at dangerous areas because children would need to be supervised here. The views down the valley are stunning and the tourist drive then took us towards Uralla via the beautiful Gostwyck chapel.

Didn't know it was there! Went to Wollomombi Gorge Falls. Magnificent. Easy short walk to main lookout or longer walk fir a different view.

Within easy reach from Armidale by road there are several National Parks with well-defined walking trails that expose you to geologically spectacular landscapes in natural bush settings. My current favourite is the walk to Chandler's look-out at Wollomombi National Park. Slightly challenging for the easily vertiginous, but utterly safe and simultaneously confronting.

Divine National Park. Scenery to die for. Take all your own supplies and camp. The rainforest walks are remarkable, especially climbing up and down streams. We were the only people in the park the night we were there. Definately wilderness camping with a toilet block. Loved it.

The view is really amazing and you have several point of view to enjoy this view ! The dangars falls was such a great discovery. You can even see wallabies during your walk. But the way to reach the parking is a bit hectic. You have to drive really carefully but the road is amazing !

It's difficult to rate a National Park as presumably people only visit if they are interested in the bush, but this is one you should not miss, even if you're not a keen bushwalker, as the scenery is so spectacular. I'd imagine that after good rains when the falls are full, it must be absolutely spectacular. We did feel, however,... More

A bit of off road involved for the better spots and definitely better after rain. However, you can find quite a few places to have a dip and with some effort you can also skinny-dip in a few areas with discretion...

...pity the falls were dry. Amazing views over the gorge. The drive to the park is interesting - watch for the cows!

we went to various walks and view spots - all well worth seeing. Not much water when we were there but the waterfalls and chasms were none the less impressive we extended one of the walks to an area called rock wallaby lookout - and saw a cute bush tailed rock wallaby :-)
