Walking On Gloucester Tops

Gloucester Tops is a virtual water wonderland. You need to drive through the rivers via causeways and bridges to get there. You can swim or float on airbeds at lazy campsites beside the bubbling streams.

At higher altitudes the rivers tumble over the rocky escarpments in endless waterfalls and cascades. Depending on the season, the air can be full of mountain mist, driving thunderstorm rain or snowflakes falling gently onto rainforest flora.

The high altitude of Gloucester Tops makes it a perfect destination to escape the summer heat. Walking the tracks beneath the rainforest canopy or splashing in a mountain stream are wonderful ways to spend those hot days of summer.
