North Coast Sights

Dorrigo National Park

Updated 01/16/2014

Fodor's Review

From Bellingen a meandering and spectacular road leads inland to Dorrigo and then travels back east eventually reaching the Pacific Highway, close to Coffs Harbour. This circular scenic route, beginning along the Bellinger River, climbs more than 1,000 feet up the heavily wooded escarpment to the Dorrigo Plateau. At the top of the plateau is Dorrigo National Park, a small but outstanding subtropical rain forest that is included on the World Heritage list. Signposts along

the main road indicate walking trails. The Satinbird Stroll is a short rain-forest walk, and the 6-km (4-mile) Cedar Falls Walk leads to the most spectacular of the park's many waterfalls. The national park is approximately 31 km (19 miles) from Bellingen.

Dorrigo Rainforest Centre. The excellent Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, open daily 9–4:30, has information, educational displays, and a shop. From here you can walk out high over the forest canopy along the Skywalk boardwalk. 02/6657–2309. www.dorrigo.com.
