Waterfall Way in New South Wales
After the rainfall on the coast in New South Wales, we decided to move inland taking the Waterfall Way over the Great Dividing Range. Over the day, the weather improved a lot – clouds disappeared and the sun came out. For lunch, we stopped at a lookout just before Dorrigo NP providing a great view of the mountain range.
The next stop was the Dorrigo Rainforest Center with a skywalk along the tree tops of the rainforest. It was still a bit foggy, thus the views were limited. We headed on to the Ebora Falls, comprising the Lower and Upper falls. The rainfall of the last days finally paid off, the waterfalls carried a lot of water. Here is a picture of the Upper Ebor Falls.
We proceeded to the Wollomombi Falls. With the 220m combined drop, these are the highest falls in New South Wales and the second highest in Australia (the highest with 300m are the Wallaman Falls in Queensland). The trail to the falls started on top of the gorge, leading around it with several viewpoints. We only managed to see the falls from very high up – maybe we missed a more spectacular trail. Thus, the experience of the the falls was not as impressive as at Ebor Falls, but easily compensated by the magnificent views along the canyons. On the way back, we run into a dragon resting in the sun.
