Gloucester Information

Gloucester in New South Wales is mainly a beef and cattle area with a population of about 2,500 people. The town was originally inhabited by the Kattang Aboriginal people before European settlement. The town was first established in 1855 and named after Gloucester in England as it resembled the countryside back there.

Many people travelling to Gloucester come here to visit the nearby Barrington Tops National Park. The Park is an extinct volcano and is world heritage listed with lots of wilderness to discover. The Barrington River which runs through the park is one of the finest unpolluted rivers in New South Wales.

The Thunderbolts way lookout in Gloucester is another very popular tourist sightseeing point. Here you can see for miles over the countryside and most people visiting the area stop to enjoy the picturesque views of the countryside.

Nature lovers will also enjoy the numerous walking and hiking trails the area has to offer. There are many four wheel drive tracks which provide access to some excellent areas that are less travelled.

Some of the fantastic animals you may discover on your visit include grey kangaroos, owls, cockatoos, kookaburras, echidnas and everyone’s favourite the platypus which hangs out near the Barrington River.

People who enjoy fishing will love the Barrington River for the fresh trout the river holds. If you’re not a fan of fishing then you can at least enjoy canoeing down the river taking in the wonderful scenery. Horse riding is another popular activity too and a great way to spend your afternoon.

Two popular events not to miss are the Mountain Man Trichallenge in September and the Sharkespeare on Avon in May.
