The Waterfall Way

waterfall way scenic drive mossgrove 03The 191 kilometre Waterfall Way is one of the world's most scenic drives and recommended as a detour off the Pacific Coast Drive. The road winds upwards from the Pacific Highway from Coffs Harbour, through the delightful town of Dorrigo, and on to Armidale on the New England Tablelands.

This breathtaking journey is the perfect way to experience the diversity of the changing landscape of the Great Dividing Range from the pristine coastal beaches climbing through lush tropical rainforest to the wide open plains of New England.

Along the way you won't be able to resist stopping at the pretty market town of Bellingen renowned for its quality arts and crafts, its markets and a Jazz festival each August. The drive also provides the perfect opportunity to explore the Dorrigo World Heritage National Park an easily accessible area of rainforest. Try some fly-fishing at many great locations or trail ride on horseback along the top of spectacular gorges and wind your way down to the floor following rivers and streams that have carved their paths for more than twelve million years.

The Waterfall Way takes you through or close to several national parks including Dorrigo, New England, Oxley and Cathedral Rock and there are many thrilling lookout points along the way. The Dorrigo World Heritage National Park which gives the road its name include Ebor Falls, Mihi Falls, Dangar Falls and Wollomombi Falls with a 260 metre drop in the Oxley National Park.
