Thunderbolts Way is a scenic country road that winds through the Great Dividing Range of New South Wales. The road, which is 290 kilometres long, offers spectacular views of the surrounding valleys, mountains and rivers. 

It passes through the towns of Gloucester, Walcha, Waverley, Uralla, Armidale and Inverell, with many secluded picnic and fishing spots along the way.

It is also an excellent spot for camping, with several riverside camping spots available at Gloryvale Reserve and Bretti Reserve. The Barrington River bridge offers a picnic area with toilets. 

In addition to its many beautiful views, Thunderbolts Way also offers many lookout points for a better view of the surrounding landscape. These include the Lookout at Barrington Tops National Park, the Ebor Lookouts, the Guy Fawkes Lookout and the Thunderbolts Lookouts.

Thunderbolts Way is an excellent road for those who want to experience the beauty of the Australian countryside in an unspoilt environment.
