The Bucketts Mountains add character to the landscape in the Gloucester district. Viewed from each side they offer such different features, vegetation and unique perspective.

Enjoyed a great drive from Raymond Terrace to Gloucester, and then the next day on to Dungog. Countryside was so green and inviting, with the mountain range framing every view.

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.
