Dangar Falls

New South Wales

The Dangar Falls is a cascade waterfall located across the Bielsdown River just 1.2km north of Dorrigo. The falls are small, picturesque and are a popular local swimming hole. For a short time after rain, they are quite spectacular.

Amazing waterfall close to town. The falls can be viewed from a lookout at the top. You can also take an easy walk to the bottom of the falls & go swimming if you choose.

This is little hidden gem of a waterfall and swimming pool, off the beaten track and no signposting. Think the Dorrigo locals keep it to themselves!

A great spot for the family. I stopped in at the National Park office to check if there were any waterfalls I could take the dog to and this was their suggestion. A very short walk, easy to find and pet friendly. Beware of stinging nettles though. My daughter was stung quite badly... I guess that must be the 'danger'!
