This return walk in Wadbilliga National Park will take you to a lookout with scenic views over the Tuross River. The river cascades into a refreshing pool, a great spot for swimming. The Cascades camping area is a short distance away from the start of the walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Ngarigo people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
