Adventure in Gloucester
Famous for gold deposits and the bushranger Captain Thunderbolt, Gloucester is located in the north Hunter region, east of Barrington Tops. The nearby state forests and national parks are ideal for walking, camping and outdoor adventure sports.
Gloucester sits in a picturesque river valley surrounded by hills at the junction of the Avon, Gloucester and Barrington rivers. The closest town to Barrington Tops National Park, it makes a perfect base for adventurous activities and tours in the region, including trout fishing, canoeing, horseriding, bushwalking and camping in the park. From holiday parks to farm stays and homesteads, there's a wide range of accommodation in Gloucesteravailable.
If you're looking for something a little more sedate and civilised, sample a local drop at Tugwood Wines and Faulls Ridge wineries. Or, drop in to the Gloucester Folk Museum for some local history and culture, then relax in a local cafe or restaurant. The Gloucester Farmers Market offers premium quality, locally grown or produced products. It runs every Saturday from July to December and stocks products ranging from soaps to olive oil, wine and cheese.
