Thursday 13 November 2008 - Waterfall Way NSW

Hit the road at 8am and were soon at Wallangarra, and into NSW. We then passed through T and onto Glen Innes, which looks fascinatingly old and historic. Next was Armidale, and I tried to contact Greg (a Weinheimer cousin), but unfortunately he was at work. 

 We had lunch at a nice park near the information centre, and then headed east along Waterfall Way to Wooloombi National Park with one of the highest waterfalls in Australia. The gorge gouged out of the sandstone was absolutely spectacular, and totally unexpected. There were a few lookouts where we took photos and film. I had then thought we would head down a back way to another National Park, but this gravel road, although picturesque, was very steep, narrow and winding, which meant that travelling was much slower than anticipated. The road shadowed the Macleay River, and eventually, on dusk, we stopped beside the river and set up camp, amid curious cattle.
