The Wonga Walk

Dorrigo National Park

This rainforest walk is on a sealed track for its entire length, making it quite easy. However the track does descend to the bottom of the two waterfalls it passes before ascending to the start again. If following the track in a clockwise direction you will come to Tristania Falls which you pass in front of via a bridge. Crystal Shower falls is also seen from a bridge, and there is a track to walk behind these falls as well. The track can also incorporate the Walk with the Birds Boardwalk.

A bit of rain added to the ambience. At present not a circuit walk due to track maintenance.

Nice walk with two waterfalls & bridges. You can walk behind Crystal Shower Falls. We went early in the morning, so had the pleasure of clearing all the spiderwebs from the track haha. There was also a big python off to the side of the track. Looked like it had just had a meal. The circuit took about 2 hours to complete. Great way to start the day.

Beautiful, well-maintained walk through the bushland. Would highly recommend to anyone swinging by Dorrigo or travelling through Waterfall Way

The waterfalls on this walk are just fantastic. If you're passing Dorrigo make sure you take advantage of the opportunity and experience this walk.
