Scenic drive from Coffs Harbour to Armidale
The Waterfall Way is a scenic drive from Coffs Harbour on the NSW North Coast through the beautiful tablelands of the New England region. The 191 km touring route winds inland from the Pacific Highway, through Bellingen, up to Dorrigo and further to Armidale. The spectacular landscape changes from national parks to lush countryside, rainforest and wide, open plains.
Along the way are plenty of natural attractions to enjoy. Dorrigo National Park has a series of elevated boardwalks that allow you to see the beauty and wildlife of a subtropical rainforest. Spectacular waterfalls tumble from cliff tops in the tablelands at various high spots - Dorrigo, Ebor and Wollomombi. Armidale, Dorrigo, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour offer a good rage of accommodation, outdoor cafes, shopping and local produce at markets and roadside stalls.
