Dorrigo

On the edge of the Great Dividing Range escarpment, approximately 1,000 metres above sea level, lies the small and friendly town of Dorrigo. Highlights are the drive there via Waterfall Way, one of Australia’s most scenic roads, and the nearby rainforest walks, lookout points, waterfalls, birds and wildlife.

On the east side of the town, the Dorrigo plateau drops away into the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Dorrigo National Park. To the west lies gently rolling farmland.

In the centre of the town, the pub, bakery and country stores hark back to an era of traditional, rural Australia – mixed with an influx of chic cafes, boutiques, galleries and food stores.

Visitors who are in for some action can try trout fishing, canoeing, horse riding, mountain bike riding and self-guided 4WD trips. Not far from Dorrigo are forests and national parks with amazing trails, waterfalls, views and wildlife.
