A short walk to a beautiful multi-drop waterfall, with an option to extend the walk further for excellent views into the valley and to a second waterfall.
This heavily trafficked walk starts from the car park on Ebor Falls Road in Ebor.
The viewing area for Upper Ebor Falls is about 100 metres from the car park and offers fantastic views down to the face of the waterfall.
Watch as the Guy Fawkes River cascades down two large cliff faces, before continuing downstream into the gorge.
There are also great views in the opposite direction into the gorge and out to the surrounding ranges.
Those wanting to stretch their legs further can walk the paved path down to the Valley Lookout, which offers even more views into the gorge and of the surrounding ranges.
On the way, you’ll also pass another lookout which offers excellent views of Lower Ebor Falls, where the river plummets over 50 metres further into the gorge.
Overall, the track is relatively flat and a gentle, easy stroll.
At the viewing area for Upper Ebor Falls, there are toilets and picnic tables set among the trees. There is also a road to a car park at the Valley Lookout, which also has toilets.
