Gloucester - Cities, Towns and Localities
Gloucester is a quiet rural town framed by the Bucketts Mountains backdrop on the western side and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Barrington Tops’ region. Located in the north-eastern section of the Hunter Region, on the Gloucester River, 96 metres above sea-level, Gloucester can be accessed from Newcastle via the Bucketts Way, a country road linking Gloucester to Taree and Raymond Terrace.

Gloucester is the main centre for both commercial industries and retail shopping in the district. The district also encompasses the villages of Barrington, Bundook, Copeland, Craven, and Stratford.

With a number of local attractions and scenic drives, there is plenty to see and do. As well as our listed travel guide info, for more attractions, tours and other information contact the local tourism visitor centre. Check out our listing of Gloucester accommodation.
