The highway over the Great Dividing Range, from Armidale to Urunga, passes through Dorrigo and Bellingen and is called the Waterfall Way as there are many falls along the route.
From Bellingen we have been exploring this scenic area and today we went to see the Skywalk in the Dorrigo Rainforest National Park, Dangar Falls also near Dorrigo and took the scenic drive out to Gleniffer to the north of Bellingen.
The Skywalk boardwalk is 70 metres long and soars 21 metres over the edge of the escarpment and above the rainforest to give a never ending view across the ranges and valleys. Today wasn’t the best but still it was impressive.
It was then on to Dangar Falls, a 30 metre waterfall that cascades down the Bielsdown River. The falls can be viewed from a platform near the carpark but the climb down is worth it.
Travelling around this area with its mountainous backdrop and rolling hills is very nice.
We found a lovely little stream near Gleniffer to have our picnic lunch by. It was very tranquil, the water was very cold but crystal clear.
