Adventure - Oxley Wild Rivers National Park
Lookout over Oxley Wild Rivers

The River Walk circles back to Lions picnic area along the Apsley River, past the junction of Oxley Walk (500 m). While this track has wheelchair-accessible lookout platforms, there is a 1km path with one steep section where assistance is required. Road access is from the Oxley Highway. Find out more.
Oxley Wild Rivers National Park
The State's seventh largest national park is spread over 145,000 ha in the New England North West region of Country NSW. Part of the spectacular World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, Oxley Wild Rivers is home to the highest waterfall in NSW and has part of the Bicentennial National Trail passing through sections of the park.
There are vast areas of wilderness here, wild and scenic rivers, dry rainforest, deep rocky gorges with cascading waterfalls and many rare plants and animals. Ten separate visitor centres allow easy access and supply reliable information about walking trails, vantage points and disability access.
Highlights are undoubtedly the series of beautiful waterfalls that tumble into the forest below. They include Wollomombi and Chandler falls, Dangar and Apsley falls, each with spectacular lookouts and walking trails nearby. The park begins about 20km east of Armidale and Walcha with main access roads along the Waterfall Way and Oxley Highway. East Kunderang Homestead is located in the national park and offers accommodation but no camping. There are several campsites in the park with varying access for 2WD, 4WD or on foot.
