Wollomombi Falls, New South Wales

In the local Aboriginal dialect “Wollomombi’ comes from the word ‘Wollumbi’, which means “meeting of the waters”. The Wollomombi and Chandler rivers meet at this gorge.

The Wollomombi Falls is one of Australia’s highest waterfalls with a drop of 260 metres. I would love to see these falls at their peak flowing time, as I believe it would have to be magnificent to see. The waters of the falls heads South, joining the Macleay river on its journey to the Pacific Ocean at South West Rocks.

The photo of the path leading to the falls fascinated me with the moss and lichen growing over moist areas that the mist from the falls created.
