Oxley Wild Rivers National Park
This wild, rugged and spectacular park of 90 000 hectares is home to the 260-metre Wollomombi Falls, the highest in New South Wales (although falling into a fairly unattractive bowl), and the beautiful Dangars Falls. Both have excellent picnic facilities nearby and gas barbecues. There is a plethora of short, medium and longer walks, most of which take in a waterfall and a lookout or two, and the gorges and cliffs are home to the largest known population of brush-tailed rock-wallabies – an estimated 10 000 or so. For long guided walks in this awesome area, try Wild River Walks, which has a long day walk and an overnight walk, with camping in the bottom of a gorge.
