$3 million project to regenerate Ebor Falls from the ashes

01st Feb 2022

Two years after viewing platforms, pathways and pedestrian barriers at Ebor Falls were destroyed in devastating bushfires, the facilities which make Guy Fawkes River National Park one of the region’s most popular visitor destinations will return from the ashes.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall recently announced $3 million for the major redevelopment to develop an accessible tourist experience which will act as the ‘eastern welcome mat’ to the region.
Visitors will be drawn to the three new viewing platforms over the spectacular Guy Fawkes River gorge, incorporating raised viewing areas to give breathtaking views of the 120-metre drop twin waterfalls.
A dedicated seating area will bring visitors closer to the mist of the falls and builds capacity for cultural and nature tours in future.
NPWS and Public Works Authority will be coordinating the construction work scheduled to start in May 2022, with completion expected by June 2023.
Mr Marshall added one of the more exciting aspects of the project will be the opportunities to promote the renewed pedestrian connection to Ebor village.
“Ebor village has been connected to the falls by a pathway running alongside Guy Fawkes River for several years,” he said.
“Pathways, partnered with expanded parking infrastructure and promotional signage will encourage a greater portion of the 140,000 visitors to the falls each year to base their day trip out of Ebor.
“This will be of huge benefit to the local hotel, café and petrol station with the potential for hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income each year.
