Guy Fawkes River National Park

Open, check current alerts 


A great stop-off between the coast and Armidale along Waterfall Way, Ebor Falls offers spectacular waterfall views and scenic lookouts.

What to
Hat, sunscreen, drinking water
Please note
Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

Watch the Guy Fawkes River plunging 100m over two waterfalls at Ebor Falls. There are four sensational lookout platforms along the edge of the gorge.

Maam Nyayagi which means ‘lookout’ in Gumbayngirr, and Maam Gawbarrigamba which means 'meeting place', offer a great vantage point to see the Upper Falls.

For amazing views back towards both lower and upper waterfall tiers, stop by Maam Nyayagi which means 'place of looking at the waterfall'. Maam Nyayagi Guunyju means 'place for seeing the valley', and gives an insight out into the rugged gorge country beyond.

A 360m loop walk takes you from the carpark to an impressive, cantilevered lookout, as well as another scenic lookout. From here you'll enjoy picturesque views of the majestic Ebor Falls, plunging over the waterfalls edge. Just a short walk from the falls is Ebor Falls picnic area. Settle down for a picnic lunch or enjoy a barbecue in a peaceful bushland setting.

If you're keen for more, take the 1.1km walk into Ebor Village from Ebor Falls by following Village walking track from the Upper Falls carpark to the east.

Golden everlasting daisies bloom around the upper falls in the warmer months and rare ground orchids flower in the late spring and summer. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a wedge-tailed eagle soaring above you as you picnic in the grassy woodlands area next to the falls.

The Gumbaynggirr people traditionally called Ebor Falls ‘Martiam’, which means ‘the great falls’.
