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. Three lookout platforms along the edge of the gorge – upper falls, lower falls and valley view — give spectacular views out into the rugged gorge country.

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’.
