Wollomombi Falls Section of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, NSW.

Superb Lyrebird at Edgars Lookout

Edgars Lookout:
When we drove to Edgars Lookout in the Wollomombi section of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park we were excited to observe a Superb Lyrebird quietly foraging between the lookout and the picnic area.

There is a large picnic area at Wollomombi Falls with tables, toilets, a large picnic shelter, information boards and a beautiful vista. The walks start from here.

We only walked 150 m to the Wollomombi Falls Lookout (300 m return). The falls were barely a trickle but the gorge is still a magnificent sight.
