Welcome to the Barrington Tops
World Heritage wilderness just three hours north of Sydney, Australia.
The Barrington Tops wilderness area forms part of the Gondwana Rainforest network. The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia include the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world, extending past Newcastle to the south-east of Queensland. The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia are World Heritage-listed, thriving with plants and wildlife, and an outstanding example of the major stages of Earth’s evolution.
Covering more than 95,000 hectares of unspoilt wilderness, this is a must-see destination with an almost mystical reputation….. aeroplanes have been lost and never found within it and convicts on the run have hidden amongst its deep forests for years!
You can access the Barrington Tops, from the east and north from Gloucester from the south via Dungog or from the west via Scone.
