Went to major points of interest in this beautiful national park; Wollomombi falls, Danger falls and Aspley falls. All places were great with a few great walking tracks. I was most impressed with Aspley falls. I really think it is under rated a lot. I am not surprised if this place becomes a major attraction ! Highly recommend.

Attractive national park with well marked routes and several useful lookouts. When we were there it was very dry so there was little water in the canyon (small still pools) and no waterfalls but with a little imagination you could see that this area could be a torrent of water and cacophony of sound. Perhaps it was the time of... More

We visited here at the end of the day so didn't actually do the walks. However the scenery around the picnic areas looks pretty good so if the rest of the walk is similar then it could turn out quite spectacular. We will definitely do these walks if we ever return

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
