Dorrigo National Park's walking tracks give you a vivid experience of this rainforest world. There are walks for all levels of ability and time constraints, and the most popular tracks have interpretive signage.

The elevated boardwalks, which are wheelchair accessible, take you high above the forest floor. On clear days the view reaches from the mountains to the sea, but the experience of walking through the mist-shrouded treetops is no less magical.


crystal showers falls dorrigoThe walk to Crystal Shower Falls might be one of the shortest waterfall walks, but it is also one of the most intriguing because you can go behind the waterfall itself. Lush rainforest towers above you on the walk to the falls and you might hear the call of rainforest birds like fruit doves.

Once you reach the falls, a suspension bridge leads to a short side track that will take you behind the waterfall into a rocky cavern.

To get to Crystal Shower Falls you'll need to take the first part of the Satinbird stroll and then join the Wonga walk, leaving from The Glade picnic area. If you are feeling energetic and want to explore the rainforest more you can carry on walking the Wonga walk.

Directions: this walk is from the Glade, via Satinbird Stroll. Linked tracks are Walk with the Birds Boardwalk and the Wonga Walk.

The Walk with the Birds boardwalk in Dorrigo National Park takes you into the upper levels of the rainforest.

This elevated boardwalk winds through the mid-levels of the rainforest and is ideal for birdwatchers, photographers and nature-lovers of all ages and abilities.

There are over 120 species of birds in the park and many use this beautiful location for feeding, nesting and mating. Keep an eye out for such treats as the courting display of the paradise riflebird, or spot the mounds built by the male brush turkey. Flowers and seeds are easier to spot from this elevated vantage point than they are from ground-level.

Directions: this walk starts a short distance from the Glade picnic area, one kilometre from the Rainforest Centre. It links with Wonga Walk and Satinbird Stroll. It can also be walked from the Rainforest Centre (2km, 50 mins).

mossgrove dorrigo wonga walkThe Wonga walk delivers all the delights of the subtropical rainforest and is one of the most popular walks not only in Dorrigo National Park, but also in Australia.

Tall, lush World Heritage listed rainforest provides a cool and shaded walking track. The cascading Tristania and Crystal Falls, 600-year-old trees, colourful fungi and interesting bird calls are just some of the sights and sounds waiting for you on this walk.

There are some steeper sections along the walk, a few steps and some boulder crossings, but you can break the walk up into shorter sections.

To get to the Wonga walk, you'll need to take the first part of the Satinbird stroll and then join the Wonga Walk, or start with the Lyrebird Link track from the Rainforest Centre to get to the Wonga walk. Look at the Dorrigo National Park map to see all the options.

Directions: from the Glade picnic area this is a moderate 5.4 km circuit. Allow around 2hrs 30 mins. From the Rainforest Centre this is a moderate 6.2 km circuit. Allow around 2hrs 30 mins.
