The Tops of Barrington Tops
Imagine a place where the mountain grandeur is so unspoilt that the air itself is almost blue. Where adjacent rainforest surrounds you with the quiet secret magic that makes the expectation of mythical characters seem quite rational. Or the streams and waterfalls so clear that the word crystal seems inadequate.
There are four main areas offering access to the diverse beauty of the forests of the Barrington Tops region. The experience of each is different and a single visit can grant only a glimpse of the depth and complexity of these natural wonderlands.
The unique quality of this region is reflected in its listing as a World Heritage Area - the closest such area to Newcastle, and one accessible even to those with limited mobility. Barrington Tops is the habitat of an enormous diversity of plant and animal life being at the northern extremity of the range for many southern Australian species as well as the southernmost extent for many more tropical species. More than fifty plants and animals of the Barrington are listed as rare, threatened or endangered.
