Wollomombi Walking Track

It’s all waterfalls and wilderness on this easy walk around the rim of the Wollomombi Gorge high in the falls country of the Northern Tablelands, near Armidale. A great way to reacquaint yourself with the great outdoors, this scenic walk offers great wildlife spotting and birdwatching.

Passing the Falls lookout, keep your eyes out for the colourful spotted pardalote, with its call, that sounds like ‘sleep maybe’. Wedge tailed eagles are often seen here, surfing the thermals that rise off the gorge.

The track crosses the Wollomombi River where you might see a platypus paddling by or an eastern grey kangaroo lying in the shade, before you arrive at the picturesque Chandlers waterfall.

After all that exercise and fresh mountain air you’ll be ready for lunch, so head back for a barbecue at Wollomombi Gorge and Falls picnic area.
