I feel conflicted bringing this wonderful drive to peoples attention, because I love enjoying it with as little traffic as possible. After all you don't want to be navigating lots of curvy bends in traffic, especially when you are trying to take in magnificent landscape and waterfalls! You can drop into the beautiful Dorrigo National Park and a few other... More

Had a wonderful drive along Waterfall Way, the scenery was beautiful and relaxing. Wollomombi Falls were quite small, great view it would be after a heavy rain. Overall great drive, definetely worth the trip

Dorrigo Rainforest, fantastic. Dangar and Ebor falls also great. Unfortunately due to the state of the roads 9don't have a 4WD and turned back after a very short attempt at both) we didn't get to experience Cathedral Rock or Point Lookout. Would not suggest trying in a rental unless its a 4WD.

This road between Armidale and Bellingen/Coffs Harbour is one of the most scenic roads in New South Wales. There are a number of very nice waterfalls that are all not very far from the through-road, Like the Wollomombi Gorge and waterfall and the Upper and Lower Ebor Falls. The village of Dorrigo is on this road with its Sky Walk... More

Great drive - especially between Bellingen and Ebor!! A large range of environments greet travellers as they travel inland from Bellingen up the escarpment to Dorrigo and then further inland to Ebor. The last 80k into Armidale is a bit ho-hum so if you travelling west to east don't be disappointed - it will get better! The road surface is... More

The waterfall way is very aptly named, especially Ebor Falls (at Ebor) and Dangar Falls at Dorigo. Dont miss out on the Dorigo National Park and the Sky Walk plus a 6.6km loop walk which is excellent! (Crystal Falls is a standout with a cave behind the falls that you can walk into)

Multiple places to stop and walk and view the waterfalls etc. Dorrigo rainforest lookout and walks in the Dorrigo NP are excellent. Ebor and Dangar falls also worht taking time to visit. Dont rush across in a couple of hours or you... More

We found that the roadworks held us up a bit, but if it means an improvement to the travel and time then it's worth it.
