Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were going to Ellenborough Falls via the Bulga Rd and found that the road was closed due to a landslide. We decided to still go there but via Tapin Tops.
The roads to Potaroo Falls had also been washed out so we couldn’t take our friends to see that.
They loved the picnic / camping spot so we decided to have morning tea and take a walk through the rainforest. We hadn’t realised that the forest had been badly affected by the bush fire and was only just starting to recover. What a shame.
Padman Rd was open so we did get to Ellenborough Falls in the end. Also, watch out for log trucks passing by. They drive fast and are huge. If you have a 2 way radio go on channel 24 and listen out for them.

We visited this area for the day, very scenic, gravel roads that can be a little rough but navigable Worth the visit

The location is vey scenic but watch out for the cops on Padmans Rd. I got pulled over near the state forest for riding an unregistered trail bike $660.

If you are exploring the Mid North Coast hinterland don't miss Tapin Tops National Park. There are some great places to stay in Elands on AirB&B or you can camp at Dingo Tops. It is a spectacular part of the Eastern Ranges in the mountains northwest of Wingham.

Rowleys Rock lookout has panoramic views all the way to the ocean. There are walks through subtropical rainforest and old growth eucalyptus forest. Abundant wildlife and rich diversity of plants.

An easy walk to Potaroo Falls allows you to scramble over rocks to a beautiful swimming waterhole.

The best place to stay is Dingo Tops campground or a B&B in Elands if you're exploring the park for more than a day-trip.

Tapin Tops National Park can be accessed through either Wingham or Elands from the Taree area. Entry is free. Worth visiting in the park are two waterfalls - the 200 metre high Ellenborough Falls near Elands and Potoroo Falls near Dingo Tops. The latter requires a 1 km walk upstream along a fairly level track.

There are picnic areas at both falls and Dingo Tops Camping area which also has a short bush circuit to get up close to the tall timbers in the forest. Some scenic lookouts are located at Rowleys Peak and Blue Knob in the park.

Most of the roads are dirt or gravel but are well formed and reasonably maintained. Generally they are suitable for 2WD vehicles but check first with NPWS for current road conditions. If travelling during the weekdays keep an eye out for forestry trucks on some of the roads.

Well worth a visit when travelling up the coast. Incredible scenery and wildlife, however mind the pot holes on some of the roads!
