    Lovely riverside walk
    The Drip is a 3Km out-and-back walk along the banks of the Goulburn River, as it travels through a sandstone gorge. It was a lovely walk-we took just over an hour to complete it. The track was generally very good and easy to walk, but there were a couple of sections where it was a bit slippery and some caution was required.

    Picnic in the Ravine
    Tourists are very well catered for at The Drip, from car parking, toilets, picnic tables and well-maintained walking trails. The tranquility and natural beauty of the area are worth coming back for. This was our second visit in 13 months.

    Must do
    This is a lovely walk that's not too difficult. Estimated to take 1 1/2 hr, but we did it in 1 hr. Lots of people chose to bring lunch to enjoy at the end of the walk where kids could also have a paddle.

    Stunning
    A moderate level 40 minute walk through some stunning scenery. Take your swimmers if you want to take a dip at the end of your walk. Looks like they are upgrading the walk with some new steps during this year so the path will be improved. A good stop off point if you’ve got a couple of hours to spare.

    Stunning Hidden Gem
    This is a must do while in Mudgee. It is approximately 30 minutes' drive from Mudgee and well worth a visit. Its approximately 1 to 1 and a half hours return grade 3 walk in the Goulbourne River Conservation Area. The track is flat in most places, with some easy going steps every so often with the track hugging the overhanging rock walls. On a warm day it is cooler along the track and the end wall is amazing, with dripping water and ferns growing.

What a wonderful place for a walk. Path way well laid out. Some stairs. A pretty little creek. Lives up to its name only a few drops but worth the walk an views. Picturesque.

Drip gorge is amazing! It's about 30 min drive north of Mudgee. When there is water flowing through the gorge, during the summer it's a great place to take a dip and cool down in the heat especially after the walk! It's a must see! A beautiful natural wonder! And a great place to stay while you're in Mudgee is the Riverlea Retreat Mudgee!

Absolutely worth the drive to visit this area. We really enjoyed the walk and the great scenery. It’s worth allowing enough time to really enjoy the area.

I have driven past the The Drip a few times and wondered what’s the big deal? Strange name?
Curiosity got the better of me one overcast Sunday afternoon. There had been a fair bit of rain over the week, so there would be some nice flow in the Goulburn River I figured.

What a beautiful spot to explore, even given the short time I had (and the storm clouds we’re building)

There are toilets and a good sized car park to get away from the Ulan Road.

Not disappointed at all, be great in summer!

An easy hike of around an hour return, beautiful scenery with the Goulburn river and the gorge country along an easy to follow mostly flat path, with a few steps to navigate some steeper sections.
It would be amazing during or just after rain but we loved it on a sunny day as well.

great walk and even greater destination where it all ends in a pool of running water; great place to dip in especially on a hot day.
