Create an itinerary including Dangar Falls
The Dangar Falls is a cascade waterfall located across the Bielsdown River about 1.2 km (0.7 mi) north of Dorrigo in the New England region of New South Wales, Australia. The falls are small, picturesque, and are a popular photographic subject. For a short time after rain, they are quite spectacular. There is an attractive picnic spot which offers excellent views. It is possible to climb down the banks and walk along the river below the water falls.

In the past, the waterhole has been the scene of several tragic accidents. Despite warning signs from the local council, the 30-metre high falls remain a popular jumping spot for tourists. In 2012, a 19-year-old German tourist died after jumping from the falls with her friends.

  • Beautiful view from the top & bottom of the falls here. Easy 100m to the top viewing platform, small playground, picnic tables & toilets here. Follow the path around to the left & down the stairs to the lower viewing platform for a different angle. Lower area only approx 500m walk from car park. Lots of stairs. 2 caravan parking bays, although our single axle van took up almost both of them pulled all the way forward... Coffee van was set up on Saturday morning in the car park.
  • One of the very beautiful waterfalls I have seen. Astonishing view from the top observation deck and also there is a trail to the bottom of the fall. There are small playground for kids, picnic area and toilets near the observation deck. There was a coffee van and It was awesome in the cold autumn weather.
