If you are spending time in the quaint town of Armidale, reserve an afternoon to spend at Australia’s largest waterfall, Wollomombi Falls. As one of the largest waterfalls in the world and dropping over 200 metres high, Woolomombi Falls is a spectacular phenomenon to witness in its thundering glory.
Head about 40km east of Armidale to the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park to catch a glimpse of the waterfall in its peak. Be mindful not to bring your dog on the trip, as animals are not permitted within the park. Wollomombi means “meeting of the waters” from its aboriginal roots, thanks to the two rivers that flow together to create the impressive waterfall. Plan your visit after a large rainfall, as the abundance of water will cause the waterfall to fall like a massive cascade. There are several other waterfalls nearby like Chandler Falls that you can add to your hike.
