The Unique Dorrigo Plateau

The expansive Dorrigo plateau stretches west from the Coffs Coast to a series of fertile valleys. This region has some of Australia's most chocolatey soil and it's not just potatoes and cattle that flourish here.

Until about 18 million years ago, the enormous Ebor-Dorrigo volcano dominated this landscape, its basaltic lava flows covering the plateau and heavy weathering over millions of years gradually shaping the sharply indented escarpment.

The result of all this is a pristine cool climate plateau unique in the Australian climate.
