The Wonga Walk

Dorrigo National Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

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.

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.
