Divine National Park. Scenery to die for. Take all your own supplies and camp. The rainforest walks are remarkable, especially climbing up and down streams. We were the only people in the park the night we were there. Definately wilderness camping with a toilet block. Loved it.

The view is really amazing and you have several point of view to enjoy this view ! The dangars falls was such a great discovery. You can even see wallabies during your walk. But the way to reach the parking is a bit hectic. You have to drive really carefully but the road is amazing !

I'd imagine that after good rains when the falls are full, it must be absolutely spectacular. We did feel, however,... More

A bit of off road involved for the better spots and definitely better after rain. However, you can find quite a few places to have a dip and with some effort you can also skinny-dip in a few areas with discretion...

...pity the falls were dry. Amazing views over the gorge. The drive to the park is interesting - watch for the cows!

we went to various walks and view spots - all well worth seeing. Not much water when we were there but the waterfalls and chasms were none the less impressive we extended one of the walks to an area called rock wallaby lookout - and saw a cute bush tailed rock wallaby :-)

Was staying in Bellingen. Enjoyed Dorrigo NP, New England NP but Oxley-Wild Rivers was probably a step too far. After the other two there probably isn't a need to come here. Nice lookouts though.

It's quite a drive on what appear to be private roads over grids and through the cows. If you are not camping make sure to take a picnic/bbq meal and spend some time admiring the scenery and walking the tracks to work up an appetite.

There is something magic about this place. If you come to the area you can not miss seeing this National Park. Take your swimmers.
