Worth a Trip: Waterfall Way

Considered New South Wales' most scenic drive, the 200km Waterfall Way links a number of beautiful national parks between Coffs Harbour and Armidale, taking you through pristine subtropical rainforest, Edenic valleys and, naturally, spectacular waterfalls. As you emerge into the tablelands, there is green countryside and wide plains.

Bellingen’s lush surrounding valleys make for extremely scenic drives. One such route leads to the hamlet of Gleniffer, approximately 12km to the north from Bellingen's main street and clearly signposted from North Bellingen. There’s a good swimming hole in the Never Never River, behind the small Gleniffer School of Arts Hall at the crossroads. You can also loop around Promised Land Rd, which takes you to the foot of the New England Tableland – a wonderful drive. Bellingen is the beginning of the iconic Waterfall Way, which continues past Dorrigo and then winds west to Armidale.
