Somewhere high on the New England Tableland rain is falling. A little creek flows across the high pastures and
through forests until it plunges over a waterfall. Ancient mossy forests, a remnant from Gondwana, drip with water.
Shady rainforests drink their fill. The stream grows wider and deeper as it approaches the coast. High above the trees,
a sea eagle soars searching for fish in the water below.
Winding slowly now, the river fills the wetlands where black swans nest. Tiny fish dart through the waters
of an estuary edged with mangroves. The estuary gives way to surf tumbling on to a wide sandy beach and further
out, in the ocean at the edge of the continental shelf, a humpback whale is calling to her calf.
This is the Waterfall Way, an awe inspiring journey from the high tablelands of New England through the
rainforests and down to the Coffs Coast. It is home to many rare and
endangered plants and animals that
live in an incredible variety of habitats. It is a new journey for you to explore and a new story to experience.
