Barrier Falls is a waterfall on a tributary of the Doris Creek nestled amongst mountains such as Mount Wallarra (1103m), Mount Pallin (1221m), Mount Colboyd (1011m) and Morong Hill (1203m) in east New South Wales. Barrier Falls is about 110km west of Sydney (show me). Barrier Falls is at an altitude of about 683m above sea level.
We estimate that Barrier Falls is between 150m and 260m high. This estimate is based on analysis of the topographic profile around the waterfall and may not be an accurate figure for the total fall of water seen if viewing the falls.
The nearest populated place is the town of Oberon which is 41km away with a population of around 2,500 (show me a map with Barrier Falls and Oberon).
The nearest sealed road to Barrier Falls is the Edith Road (22.4km away).
