If you’re anything like us, your weekends are there for all the road trips, country bakeries and overnight adventures.

And brilliant news, NSW has just scored a brand spanking new lookout, which means you absolutely have to make sure you cross this beauty of your weekend road trip bucket list. You’ll find the new lookout inside Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, an area which belongs to the Dunghutti (or Dunggadi) people, about a 25-minute drive from Armidale.

The overlook means you’ll have a super elevated view of both Wollomombi and Chandler Falls, the former being the highest waterfall in NSW. The Wollombombi cascades plummet 260-metres into the Chandler River and there’s even a walking track, aptly named the Wollomombi walking track, to start once you’ve soaked up all the sky-high views.

The new lookout is part of the NSW Government’s Improving Access to National Parks program, which is aimed at providing better accessibility for wheelchair users.
