The rugged ranges also reach higher here, peaking at 1577 metres, which is more than half a kilometre higher than Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. Ushering in periods of heavy snow in winter, this elevated altitude makes for some wild weather changes throughout the year, where it may be bright and sunny in the morning and hailstorming in the afternoon.
But no matter the weather, if you want to get away from it all, this is the place to be. Within the magnificent Barrington Tops parklands, you will find an array of bushwalking trails, incredible lookouts and unforgettable riverside camping and picnic spots, with the most amazing wildlife only a stone’s throw away. From trout fishing and bird watching, to white water kayaking and 4WDriving, if you want outdoor adventure, you can get it all right here.
Visit Dungog and Gloucester
Of course, outdoor adventuring is not all this area has to offer. Your next visit to Barrington Tops could see you sampling local wines at any of the area’s picturesque vineyards. Or, it could find you uncovering rural charm in the beautiful riverside towns of Dungog and Gloucester, discovering more about the region’s intriguing past, checking out vibrant local festivals or simply enjoying that famed country hospitality.
