Dorrigo National Park Reviews & Ratings
I have waited a long time for this trip, and I am so pleased, great drive along waterfall way. You could spend all day here walking the trails but we only had 2 hours and there were manageable walks to do in that time. The centre has a surprisingly large gift shop ( we didn’t have a chance to try the cafe).
Maybe 2km south of Dorrigo and then 2km on a paved road brings you to the visitor centre, cafe, toilets, and souvenir shop. The never never road was closed due to weather, so the 6.8 km walking track was the go. It’s sealed and well maintained, but has maybe 20 steps. The rainforest is impressive, with tall trees most of the way. There are two nice waterfalls’ good for photos, and the creek/river at each of them crossed by a sturdy bridge. This average 60+ gent took 100 minutes, but they suggest 2-3 hours. The cafe at the visitor centre is good for refreshments before/after the walk
The drive up to Dorrigo National Park is wonderful. The curves and bends just are fun (specially in something sporty) and you feel like you're entering a different world. The national park is beautiful and feels ancient. There several walks of different lengths available and the trails are super easy to navigate. The Skywalk is the easiest to do. I would definitely recommend the short Lyrebird trails (all of 400 metres) as it puts you in the midst of the trees, Vines and bushes. The longer walk to Crystal Falls is worth it, but is around an 1.5 hour round trip with UPS and downs, while the full circuit will take around 2.5 hours (average pace). The tourism centre is also full of goodies for tourists and the cafe is pretty good too.
What a beautiful place! I visited 20 years sgo but the services are so much better now. Park rangers were friendly and helpful too. The park is a must see if visiting Dorrigo.
Dangar Falls are really worth the effort when you go to Dorrigo, also the skywalk shows a beautiful view across the mountains. We enjoyed a lovely coffee and pastries at a local cafe and then we had lunch at a delicious hotel in the main Street. It was rather cool but in Autumn this is expected.
