Gloucester County in New South Wales is one of the original 19 counties of the British colony and has joined the Gloucester Collaboration!
Proclaimed in 1826, it still exists as one of the 141 government land administrative divisions of the state. At the time, it formed the northernmost point of the colony where settlers were allowed to take up land and live. Beyond that, the wilderness was considered too dangerous.
For over 50 years Gloucester has been known as "Basecamp for Barrington Tops".
Gloucester Tops is a beautiful mountainous parkland area within world heritage Barrington Tops National Park. The Gloucester River is born there and Gloucester Falls is a much-loved series of cascades high in this beautiful part of New South Wales that sees regular winter snowfall.
