Key Dorrigo Attractions

Dangar Falls picnic area

destination dorrigo dangar falls

Two kilometres north of Dorrigo town centre is Dangar Falls, a beautiful 30-metre waterfall set amidst scenic agricultural and dairy farmland. There's a car park, a viewing platform, picnic tables and an amenities block and a walking trail that leads you to the river at the bottom of the waterfall. The viewing platform offers a great vantage point and excellent photo opportunity of the falls.  There is also a beautiful labyrinth made from different coloured pavers.

The 10 minuite walking track to the bottom of Dangar Falls has been extensively restored with boardwalks and easy steps and rails.  The track passes through an old stand of Antarctic Beech trees Nothofagus moorei. These beauties used to cover Antarctica in its milder days, before its present iced-over state. As Gondwana broke apart 180 million years ago the Antarctic Beeches worked themselves up to more suitable climates.
