Things to do around Gloucester, NSW

Travellarks, things to do around Gloucester

Gloucester and its spectacular wilderness in the Barrington Coast hinterland, beckons adventure. Bush-walking, 4WD trails, kayaking, fishing, bird-watching, abseiling, mountain biking – plenty of things to do from the mountains to the sea an hour away. Or enjoy the quaint country life in town at the gateway to the Barrington Tops and nestled in a valley of unsurpassed beauty known as ‘The Buckets”. Enjoy the Farmers Market (and Chill Out Winter Festival) cafes, cellar doors, gardens and the gold rush heritage. It’s a short drive to Barrington Tops National Park to explore the spectacular scenery of the forests of Gondwana and connect with our Aboriginal Heritage in rock art, ancient campsites, scarred trees and sacred ceremonial places.

Gloucester is 3.2hrs drive north of Sydney and about 4.5hrs direct by train.
