A bushwalker’s utopia, Barrington Tops is a not-so remote section of NSW offering hikers prepared to get off the beaten track for the sweetest of rewards. Located in the eastern precinct of Barrington Tops National Park, the Gloucester Tops Circuit is the standout 7km loop as it combines three of the park’s best walks into a manageable 7km trek.

From towering snow gum forests and moss carpets to lively swamp wallabies and grey kangaroos, it’s an almighty experience that is best included as part of long weekend of 4-wheel driving, mountain biking and wild swimming in the National Park.
