1. Coffs Harbour: Guided Day Trip to Dorrigo National Park
Ready to dive into the wild, untamed beauty of New South Wales’ national parks? Drive through the Bellinger Valley on a guided day trip, stopping at Dangar Falls and the Gondwana Rainforests. Relax with a picnic lunch, before tasting wines at the award-winning Raleigh Winery. Get picked up from your accommodations and enjoy the rich pasturelands of the Bellinger Valley, winding your way up the Waterfall Way on a scenic drive. Arrive at the top of the mountain and be treated to a delicious morning tea, complimented with fresh fruit and homemade cake. Choose to indulge in a selection of teas, coffee, or hot chocolate as you take in fairytale-like views over the valley. Take a short drive through the small town of Dorrigo until you come across the cascading Dangar Falls. Wander through the forest of Antarctic beech trees and listen to the roaring sound grow louder. In the warmer months, dive right in and swim behind the waterfall. Make your next stop at the Gondwana Rainforests within the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Dorrigo National Park. Arrive in Dorrigo and decide whether to take the steeper walk to the Crystal Shower Falls, or a more relaxing stroll on the Walk with the Birds boardwalk. Both paths lead you to the Skywalk lookout to take in breathtaking views of the national park. Immerse yourself in the ambiance of the rainforest and indulge in a delicious picnic lunch, before heading back down Waterfall Way. Visit the award-winning Raleigh Winery and savor the taste of boutique wines, fortified wines, and the famous brandy creme liqueurs. Enjoy beautiful views over the Bellinger River at the winery, before driving back to your accommodations.
