Summary: Chandler Falls in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park drops about 200m into a deep gorge; a 4.2km return walk is needed to get the best view.

The Chandler Falls in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park is located near the even higher Wollomombi Falls (the tallest in NSW). The Chandler River drops about 200m, which would make it the second-highest in NSW anf fourth-highest in Australia, but its exact height has not been verified. The waterfall can just been seen in the distance from the Wollomombi Falls Lookout near the carpark, and a walking track provides a closer view.

Getting to Chandler Falls

The waterfall is located in the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, about 40km east of Armidale and 1.5km off the Waterfall Way. Near the carpark is a picnic area with barbeques. From the main viewing platform (about 200m from the carpark) you can just see the falls in the distance, beyond the Wollomombi Falls.

The Wollomombi Walking Track (4.2km return) is the only way to get a good view of the call, with the last of three lookouts providing a view of the top of Chandler Falls. There is no access to the base of the falls.
