Some of the best walks in the Barrington region are those at Gloucester Tops.
The Gloucester Tops Circuit at 8km, features three of the most popular walking tracks in the region. Follow the Gloucester River walking track through spectacular Snow Gum woodland to reach the majestic Gloucester Falls. The trail continues through sub-alpine woodland, joining with the Antarctic Beech Forest track that houses some great waterfalls and Gondwana Rainforest which proctects a variety of rare and threatened species.
To reach Gloucester Tops, from Bucketts Way turn onto Gloucester Tops Road about 10km south of Gloucester and follow the road though the farmlands of the Invergordon Valley. You’ll meet the Gloucester River many times at picturesque fords in the river (there’s a flood route you can follow if the crossings are too high).
You’ll finally reach Barrington Tops National Park where you’ll ascend to Gloucester Tops. I highly recommend a stay at either the Gloucester Tops Riverside Caravan Park or the Gloucester River campground (which is just inside the National Park boundary).
