Starting from the car park on Gloucester Tops Road, Barrington Tops National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around Gloucester Tops via the Antarctic Beech Forest, Gloucester Falls and River walking tracks. This moderately challenging loop winds its way around Gloucester Tops, combining three popular walks in the eastern section of Barrington Tops National Park. The walk begins along the Antarctic Beech Forest Walking Track, descending through sub-alpine snow gum woodland, then continues through prehistoric Gondwana rainforest with a dense canopy of Antarctic beech, leading to the rocky gorge with a beautiful cascade. After crossing the creek, the walk climbs steeply back to the snow gum forest and heads down to the Andrew Laurie Lookout, which offers expansive views of the surrounding mountains. Continuing along the Gloucester Falls Walking Track, the walk descends steeply to a lookout above Gloucester Falls, then follows the mostly flat River Walking Track alongside the Gloucester River, leading to a car park. From there, the walk briefly follows Gloucester Tops Road, then rejoins the track and continues following the river before veering away and returning to the main car park. This loop consists of wide and narrow, mostly flat walking trails with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, boardwalk sections, short steep hills and creek crossings. Suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
