We missed the big rainfall and this would have been spectacular. We visited on a drier afternoon one week after the area had a months rainfall in a small number of days. A small viewing platform near the car park but don't be fooled there is a safe walking track ( harder to find) past the labyrinth. An easy boardwalk... More

Dangar Falls are pretty impressive, especially after heavy rain. Located just outside Dorrigo just off the main road, it is well signposted. There is plenty of parking and a nice BBQ and playground area right next to the lookout over the falls. I also recommend the short walk that takes you down to the river bed just below the falls....

Awesome place! You can swim on the cold water and also see the beautiful view from the top. Nice stop for your roadtrip between gold coast and sydney!

Just a few steps from the car park to the lookout platform. Nice looking falls with grass and picnic table nearby. We didn't walk along the path due to young kids but I'm sure it would have been worth it

This waterfall is picturesque but not breathtaking. Small platform where you need to take your turn. Having witnessed many waterfalls around Australia (Litchfield National Park, NT and the Kimberleys, WA) and the world this was just okay! If one hasn't seeing many waterfalls it is worth a look.

The waterfall is spectacular especially after a little rain which were exactly the conditions we saw the day we visited. However, you can't fit many people on the little platform and the wood is starting to deteriorate along the top of the fence. There is only one corner where you can get an image of the falls and everyone vies... More

Lovely side trip along the Waterfall way that allows everyone to embrace the chilliness of fresh mountain water in a stunning swimming hole, surrounded by cliffs. Lovely, relaxing half an hour with easy walk and enough wildlife to view, too.

About an hours drive south of Coffs these falls are a great way to spend a few hours on a hot day - starting with a scenic drive up Waterfall Way through a heritage listed national park. Once at the parking spot for the falls there is a short walk which is relatively easy until the last part of the... More
