This region provides plenty of things to see and do, such as tackling the Bucketts scenic walk, or simply relaxing by one of the many rivers which flow from the mountains, congregating close to the town. The Barrington, Gloucester and Avon rivers provide a haven for all forms of life, and have become a playground for wilderness enthusiests.
If history is your thing, then close by at Copeland Tops there is a historic gold rush heritage site that is worth a visit. Bushwalking in ancient Gondwana rainforests, the excitement of wilderness camping and spectacular lookouts over the ranges from Barrington Tops Plateau are just some of the experiences that continue to draw people to the Gloucester region from across the country.
