The Guyra Rd, Ebor bushfire burnt more than 22,000 ha of land during the 2019 – 2020 bushfires, devastating the Ebor Falls precinct and damaging crucial infrastructure.

The Upper Falls precinct features new wheelchair accessible pathways throughout, two new viewing platforms and an expanded carpark with long vehicle bays.

New amenities for visitors have been installed, including flushing toilets and dedicated picnic facilities, with three new picnic shelters and a gas barbecue.

The Lower Falls precinct features two new lookouts, picnic shelters, amenities, and an upgraded concrete pathway between the upper and lower precincts.

Ebor Falls Road has been resealed to ensure its readiness for increased tourist traffic and the 700 m Ebor Village Walking Track has been resurfaced, allowing visitors to easily stroll from the Upper Falls Visitor Precinct to Ebor township and back.

The Upper Falls visitor precinct re-opened in late 2023, after extensive bushfire repair works and has delighted visitors over the past few months with its spectacular new lookouts and amenities.

Ebor Falls attracts more than 140,000 annual visitors each year, making it one of the region’s most important tourist drawcards and a major contributor to the local economy.

This $5.5 million upgrade will encourage a wider range of visitors to visit, stay overnight and spend money at local businesses in the region, helping to build a strong and resilient regional economy.

The Guy Fawkes River plunges 100 m over two waterfalls at Ebor Falls. Lookout platforms along the edge of the gorge give spectacular views out into the rugged gorge country.
