Welcome to Dorrigo

It's main attraction is Dangar Falls, 2km north of town, which cascades over a series of rocky shelves before plummeting into a basin. You can swim if you don't mind a bit of glacial bathing. A partly sealed road continues north past here and swings east into Coffs Harbour via beautiful winding rainforest roads and a huge tallow-wood tree, 56m high and more than 3m in diameter.

In the other direction, the Waterfall Way climbs up the escarpment to Dorrigo from Bellingen. The drive passes several plunging torrents and provides a teaser for the lush vistas of Dorrigo National Park.
