Starting from the car park on Gloucester Tops Road this short one-way walk takes you through Barrington Tops National Park to the Gloucester Tops picnic area. See how many wombats you can spot before getting to the picnic area for a picnic. Let us begin by acknowledging the Biripi & Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
