The Majestic Buddong Falls
One of the highlights of the Hume and Hovell Walking Track but requires a
drive of around I hour from Tumbarumba, either from Bago Forest (near
Laurel Hill turn into Knopsens Road, then Snubba Road, and follow the
signs) or from the Powerline Road off the Elliott Way. The Elliott Way is
south of Tumbarumba, about 18kms along the Tooma Road. Turn left at the
Elliott Way and continue until you come to the gravel road which runs
underneath the large high voltage powerlines. Turn left and continue on
until you see the directional sign to Buddong Falls. Both roads into
Buddong Falls are not suitable for 2 wheel drive vehicles.
There is an easy 400 metre return walk from the picnic area to view the top
fall, and a steeper 1.6 km return walk to view the bottom fall. Listen for
the lyrebirds calling in the steep valley below the falls.
For experienced hikers, a total of 17 campsites have been developed along
the whole track. Each campsite is about a day's walking from the next.
Map kits for the HUME AND HOVELL WALKING TRACK are for sale at the
Tumbarumba Visitor Information Centre.
