Great walks and nice lunch at the Cafe. The rainforest walks were nice and relaxing and got to see some wildlife which was great.

I loved the easy drive from Coffs Harbour to the Rainforest Centre. The Skywalk was breathtaking and the short walk to Crystal Shower Falls was great. The falls were magical and walking behind them was spectacular. The cooler climate is great for walking. Next time I will do a longer walk

Dorrigo NP offers nice walking trails, partly wheelchair accessible. After visiting the visitor center you sure want to take the short way to the skywalk which offers a stunning view. After that we took the Wonga trail which is a beautiful 2 to 3 hours walk through the national park with it's big trees, nice birds, and two waterfalls.
We recommend Dorrigo NP to everyone who stays at Coffs Harbour/Bellingen/Dorrigo

Fantastic 1hour round trip walk through a beautiful forest with much birdlife and a few pademelons to greet us at the end. Highly recommend taking this very easy but enjoyable walk. The cafe has nice food and coffee and there is a nice picnic area just outside the rainforest centre.

Rainforest discovery centre is well worth visiting. Open 9am -4.30pm. (but you can access the walks outside these hours between 5am to 10pm I think) Suggested entry donation $2 adults, $1 child. Interesting info centre with good video and small display on rainforest plants and animals etc, often an art exhibition. Spotlessly clean toilet facilities, drinking water supply, pleasant cafe with friendly service and good outdoor seating available on terrace.

A number of walks head off -the most popular is the Wonga track -about 35 minutes to the Glades picnic area (gas BBQs, picnic tables, shelter, heaps of grass for playing space and a lookout, clean, composting toilets) then another hour onto the Crystal falls with a sturdy suspension bridge in front of the falls.

Track is undulating, but predominantly downhill on the way to the falls. Several strategic seats.
My mother in her mid 70s and not so fit managed fine on the uphill sections on the way back...just took it slow. Plenty to see en route, and heaps of birds around even in the middle of the day.

Bitumen track, easy to walk 2 abreast. although it would be a slog pushing a wheelchair up the uphill sections, would be do-able, especially around /from the glades area picnic area. There is a steep ramp down from visitor centre with raised slats across it: good for grip, not so good for wheelchairs.
