The Apsley Falls are two waterfalls on the Apsley River in the Northern Tablelands region of New South Wales, Australia. The falls are located about 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Walcha, and 1 kilometre off the Oxley Highway in a deep gorge, that is part of the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. They are the first falls in a succession of dramatic drops in an area that has some of the most remarkable scenery in Eastern Australia. The first drop of the falls is about 65 metres (213 ft) in depth, and the second, which is about 800 metres (2,625 ft) further on, plummets 58 metres (190 ft) to the bottom of the gorge.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Apsley Falls and many more Walcha attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Walcha travel itinerary planner.

This is a real highlight. Who would have thought such a place is so close and accessible for all travellers. Great walks on very well maintained tracks. If you can't walk far you can park right...

If you can time your visit sometime after rain, it’s really special. 123 meter drop and some great vantage spots to see it. You can view it from just a few steps away from the parking lot, or walk...

Apsley Falls remains a beautiful New England attraction in the inland plains. Opening up in the dramatic geological canyon with sheer rock faces that drop hundreds of meters on each side, the falls range from a trickle in dry weather to the roaring deluge known for the mist that creates a rainbow. Known by the Aboriginal custodians of the land as the Rainbow Serpent, this attraction is priceless for reasons across several cultures throughout the ages 🌈 🐍
A car park is right at the top of the falls. Fantastic views of the upper and lower falls from the easy walking Rim Trail via a suspension bridge. Well worth a visit.
