    Waterfall Way Continued...

    April 19, 2017 in Australia

    After a cold night (for Aussie) we still managed an outdoor hair wash, etc... unlike the friendly Aussie's in the caravan next to us with their own hot shower. These free (very basic) rest areas area much more social places to camp than most campsites. Hope we will still be doing this sort of thing when we are their age, at 82! We had to get the waterproofs out for our walk at Cathedral Rocks but thankfully the sun came out later in the afternoon. The scramble up and over these huge boulders, finally using a chain to get to the top was brilliant fun. They are huge granite rocks piled up like giant marbles. From here we went along to Wollomombi Gorge and walked to Chandler Lookout where we had a great view of both Wollomombi and Chandler Falls that plunge into an enormous ravine. The 2nd highest falls in Australia at 220 metres. Found another rest area in the nearby tiny hamlet of Wollomombi, on a piece of grassland just across from the small village shop. Wandered across to have a look, turns out that the young couple who have recently taken over also run a pub at the back. About as rustic as it gets, the locals were very friendly and we enjoyed a couple of beers and a long chat. Great to see a slice of backcountry life off the tourist trail.Read more

    42 • Wollomombi Falls

    September 7, 2016 in Australia

    Ein eiskalter Wind hat uns recht schnell vom bisher höchsten Punkt der Reise vertrieben. Der Morgen in Guyra (1330 m) war trotzdem recht entspannt, Mia ist wieder ganz die alte und meist quietschvergnügt :)
    Unser nächstes Ziel waren die Wollomombi und Chandler Falls, zwei riesige Wasserfälle die sich in eine tiefe Schlucht stürzen. Die Wanderung zu verschiedenen Aussichtspunkten hat sich gelohnt. Und zwischendrin haben wir wieder BBQ gemacht; in Australien mangelt es jedenfalls nicht an schönen Picnicplätzen und öffentlichen Toiletten!
    Für Abends haben wir einen stillen Platz an einem Fluss gefunden. Unserer einziger Campnachbar Greg hat uns seinen alten Feuereimer überlassen und gleich noch Feuer gemacht.

    Wollomobi Falls

    April 12, 2015 in Australia

    The highest waterfall in NSW and the highest in Australia! Located at the "Oxley Wild Rivers" NP, the "Wollomobi Falls" have an single drop of 220 metres.
    When you drive along the tabelland you wouldn't imagine that just next to the road is such an immense Gorge! An very impressive view!

    Der "Wollomobi Wasserfall" ist mit seinen 220m der höchste in NSW und der zweithöchste in Australien.
    Als ich die Straße auf dem Tabelland entlanggefahren bin, hat es als eine ganz normale Ebne ausgesehen! Nicht zu ahnen dass (fast) direkt an der Straße eine riesige Schlucht sich auftut. Allesamt eine sehr imposante Erscheinung!Read more
