34 km of sealed road around the Bucketts. Barrington West Rd, Faulkland Rd and Bucketts Rd. Beautiful rural scenery and several river crossings (take care and check the water depth). Stop off along the way to say hi to the cows and admire the views.

plenty of ways to slow down and take in the valley lifestyle. Stop in any village or town and spend a little or a lot. The Bucketts Way is a restful trip on any day.

Only viewed them from a distance because the weather was too hot to do the walk up into them. Really unusual rock formations and love the way they overlook the township of Gloucester.

We climbed to the top of the Bucketts Mountains and were rewarded with wonderful views. The walk is strenuous on one side (the one we took) and we found out later that there is an easier walk on the other side of the mountain.
