Oxley Wild Rivers National Park

Mid-North Coast

The 260m-high Wollomombi Falls – the highest in NSW and second highest in Australia – are a highlight of this national park and can be viewed from the Wollomombi Lookout. There are a couple of fairly easy walks where you can get different views of the falls. The Wollomombi Lookout is around 1½ hours west of Bellingen, along the Waterfall Way.
