Absolutely stunning views at the Dangar Falls area just 20km outside of Armidale. Do the short walk to the Rock Wallaby lookout, its amazing. Especially recommended after a lot of rain when the waterfall is pumping!

Have just camped at Apsley Gorge, Tia Falls, Dangar Falls. Parks Nsw have done a great job with limited resources. Camps are basic but well maintained. Oxley Wild rivers park is spectacular yet we were the only campers. Get out and see these places & support the local communities.

The waterfalls were bone dry. Would have been good if they had a sign up to say so rather than doing the 4K walk. The crystal falls at Dorrigo National park were so much better than this

Went to major points of interest in this beautiful national park; Wollomombi falls, Danger falls and Aspley falls. All places were great with a few great walking tracks. I was most impressed with Aspley falls. I really think it is under rated a lot. I am not surprised if this place becomes a major attraction ! Highly recommend.

Attractive national park with well marked routes and several useful lookouts. When we were there it was very dry so there was little water in the canyon (small still pools) and no waterfalls but with a little imagination you could see that this area could be a torrent of water and cacophony of sound. Perhaps it was the time of... More

We visited here at the end of the day so didn't actually do the walks. However the scenery around the picnic areas looks pretty good so if the rest of the walk is similar then it could turn out quite spectacular. We will definitely do these walks if we ever return

Even though there was not much water in the rivers the falls were worth the trip and the walks. A couple of lookouts were closed for maintenance and the camping ground was shut which was disappointing as we were going to stay there.

The drive here took about 15-20 minutes from Armidale through scenic rural views of sheep, autumn leaves . The actual reserve is well signposted and has good fencing at dangerous areas because children would need to be supervised here. The views down the valley are stunning and the tourist drive then took us towards Uralla via the beautiful Gostwyck chapel.

Within easy reach from Armidale by road there are several National Parks with well-defined walking trails that expose you to geologically spectacular landscapes in natural bush settings. My current favourite is the walk to Chandler's look-out at Wollomombi National Park. Slightly challenging for the easily vertiginous, but utterly safe and simultaneously confronting.
