Walking Track Description

Easily one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Australia, Ebors Falls cascade over 100 metres down columns of graphite-coloured rock. In fact, there are at least two waterfalls to see, all within 10 minutes walk of the car park.

The Guy Falkes River flows perennially, so any time of year is a good time to go. Of course the most water falls in winter, but the river holds a lot of water, so you’re sure to see the it cascading through ferns and rainforest, down to the valley floor.

From the carpark head immediately to the lookout over the main falls. From there follow the bitumen track along the cliff-top, and you will eventually make your way to smaller falls, and a breathtaking view lookout over the valley, where you’ll see local birds swooping and gliding down from the cliffs to the forest canopy below.

      Ebor Falls is fantastic and is composed of two drops over columnar basalt. Traditionally Ebor Lower Falls is viewed with the Upper Falls in the background, which completes Ebor Falls, and both drops can be seen together from the most southerly lookout platform. The Ebor Volcano created successive lava flows resulting in basalt overlaying granite and can be seen locally as typical terracing. Ebor is trout fishing heaven, so visit the Dutton Trout Hatchery to learn more and travel on just a few k’s to Point Lookout in New England NP – absolutely brilliant views to the coast on a clear day. Altitude means changeable weather, with high rainfall, especially throughout the summer months along the escarpment.
      Our family have enjoyed magical walks in the area including beautiful Chaelundi in Guy Fawkes NP, Mt Highland NR and at Dorrigo NP kids both young and old love to walk under the Crystal Showers waterfall through a World Heritage listed sub-tropical rainforest wonderland. Well worth repeated long visits, we suggest staying in a beautiful Dorrigo Plateau B&B!
