Dorrigo National Park

Dorrigo National Park is only an hour from Coffs Harbour and yet if feels miles away. Visit World Heritage listed rainforests on a school excursion or day trip; magnificent waterfall walks, scenic barbecue areas and excellent birdwatching opportunities await you.

Dorrigo National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area offers stunning scenery that has been millions of years in the making. The park contains a range of forest types that protect an enormous variety of animals and birds, like red-necked pademelons, the vibrantly coloured wompoo fruit-dove and the spectacular regent bowerbird.

A great daytrip from Coffs Harbour, you can go birdwatching, relax at scenic picnic and barbecue spots, explore secret waterfalls and rainforest walks and be amazed by the views from the elevated walk which looks all the way from the forest to the sea. Be sure to stop in at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre and Canopy Cafe.
