We didn't leave enough time for the drive, so didn't see many waterfalls, but that's our fault. The drive is beautiful, and we really enjoyed Dorrigo National Park. The view from the Skywalk lookout is great, and the bird walk in the forest gets you midway between the ground and the tree tops, which is a unique perspective. You have... More

Beautiful drive, spectacular scenery. A bit scary to drive if you are of the feint of heart. Very curvy, narrow and one lane at parts. Great if you are a passenger though.

Beautiful - you can walk from the 2 carparks to the upper anf lower falls then go and enjoy a beautiful cup of chai tea and toasted sandwich at nearby Fusspots at Ebor.

Pretty and scenic spot that is well worth a visit when visiting Armidale. Plenty of parking and a short walk.

Great way to spend a day if you're around Coff's Harbour. We started there and drove to Armidale. The scenery is lovely and worth seeing. It starts off as rainforest and later farms and green fields. The little towns were lovely and cute and there were lots of waterfalls. Plenty of places to stop and I felt it was well... More

It was very poorly signed to get to some of the waterfalls but a beautiful drive none the less. The falls that we did see were lovely and the walk at Guy Fawkes was easy for someone with some mobility issues.

We travelled from Armidale to Dorrigo, part of the Waterfall Way, exploring the towns and being continually impressed by the different waterfalls. The terrain is rugged which makes the falls even more spectacular. There are walking trails and easy to access viewing platforms making this area suitable for people of all fitness levels. Weather is changeable - our day started... More

The Waterfall Way is a wonderful scenic drive from the Pacific Highway near Coffs Harbour to Armidale taking in the towns of Bellingen and Dorrigo. The spectacular landscape changes from national parks to lush countryside, rainforest and wide, open plains. Along the way drop in to the Dorrigo National Park where you can see the beautiful subtropical rainforest from a... More

This has got to be one of the prettiest drives in NSW. We started from Armidale (after visiting the Dangars Falls also - not Dangar). Lots of turnoffs along the road leading to spectacular gorges and waterfalls. Make sure you take the time to drive off into Metz Gorge, Bakers Creek Falls as well as the other more frequented spots... More
