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.

This is a vast national park, we could not visit the entire park within one trip. We saw the northern part and the gorges and waterfalls in the National Park invited us to go back. We plan to visit the southern part, Apsley Falls, etc and its neighbouring NPs. It is really a wilderness area and the tranquility, serenity cannot... More

spent 2 days here with TAFE fine arts class (sadly defunct) Confusion exists with 2 falls called "Dangar" Geographical Names Board might know of early Aboriginal name for this place which could be brought back into popular use.

We walked to the lookout but were disappointed with the view, but really enjoyed the hike. Groups of kids were enjoying the creek below, but it looked difficult to get down to the water.
