Dungog is rich in natural assets. Mountain ranges, freshwater streams, clean air and magnificent rural vistas entice visitors to the Barrington Tops area in the Hunter Valley. If you’re looking for accommodation, you’re sure to find a room with a view in this stunning location.
The main street in Dungog is an urban conservation area. Notable historic buildings include the primary school built in 1843 by well-known colonial architect Edmund Blacket. The Dungog Cinema has a Spanish Mission façade and is the oldest still-operating purpose-built cinema in Australia.
There are so many things to do in and around Dungog.
Barrington Tops National Park is a must for nature lovers. This vast, undulating basalt-capped plateau rises sharply from the surrounding valleys to a height of almost 1,600 metres – you'll find a wonder world of gushing streams, waterfalls, forests and soaring cliffs. Chichester Dam is a great place to picnic with the kids, and Chichester State Forest offers beautiful riverside camping spots.
