Getting there

Travel south from Gloucester and turn right into Gloucester Tops Rd.  This road is partly gravel and crosses a number of flood ways.  After you drive through the National Park campsite, travel another 18km to the top of the plateau. This walk is before you reach the day use area on the right opposite the Antarctic Beech track.

Route/Trail notes

Begin the walk at the car park.  Walk through open eucalyptus forest, and through patches of sub alpine swamp.  You will see glimpses of the River, but the track doesn't actually go to the River.  It returns back to the road beyond the day use area.  Return to your car via the road.  Alternatively follow the road to the right as there is another track called the River track on the other side of the road further down which links with the Gloucester Falls track and the rest of the track network as on the maps displayed at each intersection.  


No cost

We began a circuit of all three tracks in this area on this track. You really don't see much of the River, but the swamp sections are quite pretty.
